Will Vandervort Previews Clemson vs Louisville

17 September 2017

Louisville-Clemson will kickoff at 8 p.m. on ABC. The Cardinals are soft in the middle three, and Clemson's All-American DTs-Christian Wilkins and Dexter Lawrence-will dominate.

Chucky Williams (Safety, Louisville): A captain for the Cardinals, Williams started his senior season with an interception to end the game against Purdue - his seventh career pick after totaling three in each of the last three seasons. As superb as Clemson's defense has been, especially the front seven, this will present a much different test. With Lamar Jackson playing on fire this season - basically picking up where he left off a season ago - and at home, this seems like another upset alert type of game. Clemson stands second nationally and first among Power Five teams in overall defense at just over 118 yards a game. It was one of many impressive performances by Jackson, who walked away with the Heisman trophy. 7 because of Hurricane Irma, the Tigers' visit to Louisville takes center stage, with Atlantic Division stakes firmly on the line so early in the season.

Third-ranked Clemson plays at No. 14 Louisville on Saturday night, and Clemson coach Dabo Swinney calls Jackson "crazy good".

Jamaica's Prime Minister Andrew Holness shared a photo with Mosse-Brown, as he announced her death Friday and offered condolences. There was also concern that Brown would miss an appointment scheduled with Guinness Book of World Records officials.

Lamar Jackson (QB, Louisville): Need we say more.

"This game's all about momentum", said linebacker Dorian O'Daniel, who led Clemson with 14 tackles.

When these two teams played previous year Clemson turned the ball over five times, something that still bothers Dabo Swinney. "He can make any move you want, all the juke moves", Ferrell said. "Just be Kelly B. Try not to get into all of that". "We've got some physical guys inside and some real speed on the edge". It will be essential, Carter believes, to keep him behind the line and force him to pass.

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. Jackson as the defending victor will surely end the regular season with monster numbers and will appear on enough ballots come December to find himself once again at the ceremony. In the days leading up to the game, media, coaches and players alike have all praised Jackson's athleticism - but don't expect Mullen to crown Jackson as the fastest between the two.

He toured a Houston shelter housing hundreds of displaced people and walking streets lined with soggy, discarded possessions. A Tampa man died after the chain saw he was using to remove trees recoiled and cut his carotid artery.

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

So, you know, maybe this game isn't all that exciting to you right now. The Tigers had 11 sacks in shutting down Auburn last week. The defending champion Tigers are facing a second straight top-15 opponent, and their outstanding defense will face a tall task against Heisman Trophy quarterback Lamar Jackson. "There's a lot of good players out there and I feel we have a lot of great players as well".

"I had the opportunity to watch Clemson play last weekend", UofL head coach Bobby Petrino said. Neither of these teams has played stiff competition thus far, so this is a bit of a toss up. However, when you flip that equation, a not-so-surprising result gets spat out, too.
