Two dual threat QB's, the Tigers' tough defense trying to stop Lamar Jackson and the Louisville offense. The two are cousins. That being the case, we can slightly adjust the record from above; Louisville is 13-3 in games that Lamar Jackson has run for at least 100 yards, unofficially.
The reigning Heisman Trophy victor. One player, in particular, to look out for is a junior defensive end, Austin Bryant. Derek Mason's Vanderbilt team gets a signature win.
College GameDay is at Louisville for Saturday night's game against Clemson.
Lamar Jackson might have to revert to his bag-o-tricks to pull this one out.
"We've had three really good battles with them, had our opportunities and come up short", Petrino said.
I don't like going against good teams, especially when they are at home.
The two were close growing up, adopting more of a sibling rivalry when it came to the gridiron. "They understand what they're doing and they're very well coached". Wake Forest looks like it is capable of molding a solid defensive game plan with consistency all season.
As Mullen pondered his future at one of the 47 schools that offered him a scholarship the following year, the thought of finally playing with his cousin crossed his mind.
"If he's looking to pass, you'd better cover" the receivers, Venables said.
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 one could get ugly. I don't expect Mr. Deja Vu to make a return visit Saturday.
Jackson congratulated Mullen once he made his commitment, and just like that they were opponents once again. Serving as the backbone of the defense for the past three years now, the Clemson defensive line has quietly been the most impactful area of the depth chart for the Tigers in their recent run of success. I think he will buy into the argument that, even without Watson, Clemson is bigger, stronger, faster, and deeper than the Cards. "We talked about that as well". There were a few blips in the first two games - a shaky, wobbly throw into traffic in the red zone at UNC comes to mind - but he just seems much more polished. Led by reigning Heisman trophy victor Lamar Jackson, the Cardinals entered 2017 ranked 16th amidst doubts about supporting talent. "It would be nice since the defense did step up this week, to take some weight off their shoulders".
"He's a good athlete".
"He felt like they could have done things better to put themselves in better position and win", Mullen said.
Clemson's defense not only shut down Auburn - it left little doubt which side of the ball would lead its latest try for a national championship. "We FaceTime a lot, just be laughing about stuff, always cracking jokes. It's just a family thing".
Clemson mayor J.C. Cook III and Greg Fischer, the mayor of Louisville, are engaging in a friendly rivalry and betting bourbon on the outcome of Saturday's game, according to a news release from the city of Clemson. The Chippewas secondary leads the nation in interceptions, picking off eight passes in the first two games. We never actually (raced). Gainesville, Florida, got pounded by Hurricane Irma, and local officials are weighing whether the resources can be devoted to staffing, security, parking, and the other services which are needed to stage a college football game in front of roughly 90,000 people. "This was our first real test and I feel like we stood right up in the face of adversity and we did well". If there are any football fans in town who have not seen him in person, they should do so while they have the chance.
