In the Clemson Tigers’ 26-14 victory over the North Carolina State Wolfpack Thursday night, junior wide receiver Martavis Bryant had his best game of the season. The 6’5, 200 lb. junior out of Calhoun Falls, South Carolina caught six passes for 73 yards and two touchdowns.
On one of Bryant’s scores, he gave the throat slash gesture that is so popular in college football (it was most recently made famous by Alabama Crimson Tide running back T.J. Yeldon, who imitated Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel’s money celebration and followed it with a throat slash).
On Tuesday, Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney said that Bryant would have his playing limited in the Tigers’ upcoming game against Wake Forest. The Tigers will host the Demon Deacons Saturday at 3:30 pm EST. The game is on ESPNU.
On the season, Bryant has nine catches for 221 yards and two touchdowns. Entering the season, Bryant had 20 career catches (1o each season) for 465 yards and six touchdowns.
Clemson will already be without offensive lineman Isiah Battle, who was suspended for punching a Wolfpack player Thursday.
