Lamar Jackson vs. Clemson defense, Florida's offense, Central Michigan's chances

Lamar Jackson vs. Clemson defense, Florida's offense, Central Michigan's chances

It's important that Florida get on the board early against a Tennessee team that has a penchant for winning games late (just ask Georgia Tech).

Hello, are you excited for this Saturday's game between No. 3 Clemson and No. 14 Louisville? It could have national ramifications.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney correctly pointed out this week that the Tigers aren't allowed to carry over their 11 sacks against Auburn into Saturday's matchup against Louisville. All of their points in a 14-6 win came in the last drive before halftime and in the first drive of the second half. They are two of the most famous schools in college football, and a lot of people think that they played in the best college football game of all time, the 2006 Rose Bowl in which Texas stopped USC on a touchdown by Vince Young in the final minute of regulation. "We feel like it is a rival". The biggest effort was dragging myself to the game against Murray State.

Clemson has won all three previous meetings, but each has been decided by six points or fewer, including a 42-36 victory past year in which the Tigers made a fourth-down stop on their own 3-yard line to hold on.

In the Cowboys' first two games, Rudolph has completed 45-of-62 passes for 638 yards and six touchdowns.

It appears Watson - who now plays for the Houston Texans - may have gotten the last laugh here.

On the other hand, Louisville's Seth Dawkins has been solid returning kickoffs, and a big one in this game could be a big boost against what has been an outstanding Clemson defense.

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. When quarterback Deshaun Watson joined the team in 2014, production went into overdrive with the Tigers averaging almost 40 points and more than 500 yards a game on the way to a national championship. I'm not picking against the Tigers again until they give me a reason to.

The Tigers managed just 26 yards in first four series, punting three times and fumbling once deep in their own territory that led to an Auburn field goal.

"They're very good up front", Petrino said. I think previous year he was just in the midst of going through his first season as really being the guy. He spent the entire off-season studying film of quarterbacks like Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady to figure out what they do well in the pocket to make themselves such accurate passers.

Stopping Jackson is a different story.

Louisville comes into the game 2-0 with wins over Purdue and North Carolina.

But All-American defensive tackle Christian Wilkins has done an excellent job of taking on that leadership role. Jackson is going to make plays. "They have to make sure they have contain and stay in gaps".

This weekend, when College Gameday shows up in Kentucky for a primetime Atlantic Coast Conference showdown, it should be billed as Jackson vs. Brent Venables - the best player in the country against the best defensive coordinator.

"There's a lot of great players out there". "You watch him the other day and you're like, 'Wow, this guy is pretty good.' He's throwing it all over the place and he's running for touchdowns".
