Clemson to Test Louisville's High-Powered Offense

Clemson to Test Louisville's High-Powered Offense

Louisville looked like a one-man offense coming in - Jackson providing almost 83 percent of its yardage (a year ago, he was at 73 percent) - and Tigers coordinator Brent Venables' defense exposed the Cardinals as such. Clemson has quickly shaken off all the doubt just two weeks in, as the Tigers replacements haven't missed a beat in their 2-0 start. "I just feel like, if we get after them and do what we do then the game will be simplified for us". USA sportsbooks aren't favoring Clemson all that heavily, which further proves the previous points.

While the Tigers do not need Bryant to be Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, they do need him to do something that plagued former Tiger signal-caller Deshaun Watson - protect the ball. It's holding teams to an eye-popping 118.5 yards per game, including just 40.0 yards through the air. "Previous year they did a very good job of getting others involved".

The growth we've seen from Duke has been fairly obvious - they are better across the board at the skill positions, Jones is a rising star, and this could be the best offensive and defensive lines the Blue Devils have had under David Cutcliffe. But Clemson stands to lose plenty in this game and they can not afford any slip ups this week. "They're very passionate about their team". They know how to keep them free. Oklahoma's defense also impressed, shutting down Ohio State's senior quarterback JT Barrett and its exciting freshman running back J.K. Dobbins. He torched U of L last season with 98 yards and two touchdowns, and it doesn't look like Jaire Alexander is going to play on Saturday.

The reigning national champions and the reigning Heisman Trophy victor square off in a marquee early-season matchup when No. 14 Louisville hosts No. 2 Clemson on Saturday.

Their last on-field meeting was one of the craziest Sunshine State high school games of recent memory, with Jackson leading Boynton Beach to two late touchdowns for a 63-58 victory over Coconut Creek. Auburn coach Gus Malzahn complimented Clemson's front four, comprised of defensive tackles Dexter Lawrence and Christian Wilkins and defensive ends Clelin Ferrell and Austin Bryant. "They have to make sure they have contain and stay in gaps".

However, for the last 21 games, and throughout the course of the season, the team has found new and inventive ways to win. With a man on first and one out, Indians reliever Bryan Shaw got John Hicks to ground a ball back to the mound.

The reigning Heisman Award-winner wasn't the top choice by many as preseason favorite to again garner the trophy this year.

"It was a great day for us", Davis said. As I write this, the over/under is set at 69, and I expect it to go up a bit more before kickoff. Jackson accounted for seven touchdowns (five running and two passing) and unofficially rushed for 150 yards while throwing for 325. "We don't talk so much about football". "Reggie (Bonnafon) and I will have to step up when our numbers are called".

The Trojans are 11-0 SU and 8-3 ATS over their last 11 games per the OddsShark College Football Database. The Louisville Cardinals have won nine of their last 10 home games.

That season, the Demon Deacons and Eagles combined to win six total games, and produced this gem, too.
