College football's biggest quarterback competitions entering the season

  College football's biggest quarterback competitions entering the season With just weeks until the opening of the season, programs such as Alabama, Clemson and Florida State still must settle a competition at quarterback.How things play out for the Crimson Tide through the end of August is one of college football’s dominant on-field story lines heading into the start of the regular season. But the Tide aren’t alone in their unsettled debate between Hurts and sophomore Tua Tagovailoa.

One of the biggest position battles of college football has come to an end.

The Clemson Tigers have title aspirations as they do every season. They need the right man behind center in order for that to happen and had a tough decision on their hand. With potential versus proven skill on the line, Clemson decided to go with the man who's shown he can get it done.

The Tigers have announced Kelly Bryant will start the season as the team's QB.

Seems like Bryant had every reason to be confident he'd keep his job

USC's Clay Helton will not name starting QB until next week

  USC's Clay Helton will not name starting QB until next week USC opens up their season in a week and a half, but they still have not named a starting quarterback. Trojans head coach Clay Helton told reporters on Tuesday that he will not name a starting QB until early next week.

Clemson will open its season on Sept. 1 by hosting Furman. Head coach Dabo Swinney said he expects multiple quarterbacks to take snaps in the season opener. Bryant started all 14 games for the Tigers last season and led Clemson to its third-straight College Football Playoff appearance.

The Clemson Tigers are looking to solve a quarterback quandary as they approach the 2018 season . Veteran starter Kelly Bryant , who led the Tigers to a CFP berth, is battling with highly-touted freshman Trevor Lawrence . Bryant was responsible for 24 touchdowns in 2017 and his 12 wins set

Trevor Lawrence is expected to be the best player from the class of 2018, but it's just a guess at this point. It's simply too hard to pull the trigger on someone who has never played a down in college football over a player who had a great season a year ago. Bryant was a big factor in this team's success a year ago with over 2,800 yards and 24 total touchdowns. Taking the ball out of his hands would be a mistake.

​​

This isn't something fans should take their eyes off of. Just because he'll be starting the season opener against Furman doesn't mean he'll have this job all season.

The Tigers play Texas A&M in a huge game the second week of the season. If Bryant struggles, head coach Dabo Swinney could give him the hook.

Ankle surgery expected to sideline USC guard Elijah Weaver 3 months .

The 6-foot-5 freshman from Cocoa, Florida is a four-star recruit who was expected to be a part of the Trojans’ perimeter rotation.
