Clemson starts strong in Sugar Bowl with a touchdown run from Trevor Lawrence
The Comeback 2hrs ago

The Clemson Tigers (#2 in both the College Football Playoff rankings and the AP poll) wasted no time getting out of the blocks against the No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes in Friday night’s Sugar Bowl semifinal. The Tigers received the opening kickoff, which Travis Etienne fielded at the Clemson three and ran to their 18. Then, Tigers’ quarterback Trevor Lawrence found Etienne through the air for gains of 11 and 26 yards, and after a Lin-J Dixon run for five and an incomplete pass, Lawrence hit Cornell Powell for 27 yards, giving Clemson first and goal from the five. Etienne rushed for three yards on first down, and then Lawrence took it in himself on a two-yard run to the right:

Here’s the earlier 27-yard catch from Powell on third down, which came just in bounds and was key to setting up this TD:

That’s a good start for the Tigers, and it also led to Etienne setting a Clemson record for career receptions by a running back:

The Tigers then got a stop on Ohio State’s first possession, but then had to punt themselves, and the Buckeyes then tied it up with a Trey Sermon TD run on their next drive. We’ll see where this game goes from here for Clemson. But Lawrence’s touchdown certainly got them off to a strong start.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
