Clemson Tigers vs. Louisville Cardinals: Five questions with beat writer Jeff Greer

Now college football fans will be hoping for more of the same on Saturday, Sept. 16 as the defending National Champions travel to Papa John's Cardinals Stadium to face the Cardinals. The Hokies' offense was just ho-hum last week against DE, but the defense pitched a shutout.

Now third-ranked Clemson (2-0) gears up for another shot at Jackson when the Tigers play at No. 14 Louisville (2-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) on Saturday night.

In leading Louisville to a 2-0 start this season, Jackson has shown why he deserves the spotlight, and why those who thought a somewhat disappointing conclusion to last season for the junior signal-caller would affect his play in 2017 were wrong.

Defensive players have been known to make bold vows before facing Jackson of how they'll stop the dual-threat quarterback, and nearly always their predictions have proven wrong.

"This year we're still trying to figure out ourselves, figure out our identity", Hyatt said. But there is plenty to look for this weekend, including the Heisman Trophy victor facing the reigning national champions and a fierce SEC rivalry game. "We just want to win the game". I think they'll win, but not by three-plus touchdowns. "If you cover them, you'd better be able to come get him".

"We know whoever wins this game is going to be a step ahead in the ACC", Clemson defensive end Austin Bryant told ESPN. "They're big and fast and physical".

Here in The Ville, we welcome the visitors from SC, even though we know they're going to plaster their infernal paw prints all over our restaurants and hotels.

"When you beat Ohio State like you beat 'em, as the starting quarterback, and you beat Notre Dame in the rain - and Notre Dame was a heck of a team two years ago - you beat Oklahoma, great team, you beat Florida State in Tallahassee in the two-minute drill; I'm just curious".

It was one of the best games of last season when the Clemson Tigers and Louisville Cardinals squared off. Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson duking it out made for an instant-classic. But Smith is going to be handful for every team Louisville plays this season.

The Tigers' best National Football League prospect is junior defensive tackle Christian Wilkins.

Q: Clemson's defensive line is one of the nation's best. "They have to make sure they have contain and stay in gaps". Clemson squandered a 28-10 halftime lead, but ultimately withstood a furious comeback attempt by Heisman victor Lamar Jackson and the Cardinals and held on to win 42-36 in Death Valley.

"It's great to win a game like that", he said Monday. Shurmur is one of five quarterbacks in the FBS with at least six touchdown passes who is averaging more than 10 yards per passing attempt.

He was good enough a year ago to almost derail Clemson's run to the national championship, when he rallied the Cards to the brink of an upset in Death Valley.

While Petrino and Swinney have likely spent the week concocting game plans and implementing schemes to give their side an edge, Fisher, whose Florida State team is idle this week, said he will enjoy watching the showdown. Texas is a huge underdog here and will have to play reasonably well just to avoid a blowout. The Tiger offense isn't almost as spectacular as the one that showcases Jackson, but it's efficient. "We all have a dream of getting to the next level, we used to see people playing on this level of football". "Reggie (Bonnafon) and I will have to step up when our numbers are called". They will be in town for the game, certifying Louisville as the capital of college football for a day. What makes this pick appealing is that IL is coming off an impressive win against Western Kentucky's high octane spread passing attack, winning 20-7, and shutting down quarterback Mike White in the process.
