Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence continued his strong play during his freshman season Saturday against Florida State.

Lawrence tossed his third touchdown pass of the game against the Seminoles with 14:12 remaining in the third quarter and made history in the process.

The 58-yard strike was the 15th touchdown of the season for Lawrence, which breaks Deshaun Watson’s record for passing touchdowns in a season by a true freshman. Watson passed for 14 in 2014.

The touchdown also pushed Clemson’s lead to 35-0 early in the second half.

Lawrence was 18-for-31 passing for 188 yards and two touchdowns in the first half.
