Clemson to Test Louisville's High-Powered Offense

"When they pin their ears back, it's pretty impressive". How can you not win the Heisman with that body of work? Venables is the reigning Frank Broyles Award victor as the nation's best assistant coach trying to lead the Tigers to consecutive national championships.

Louisville coach Bobby Petrino said his players will have to overcome Clemson's dynamic defense to have success.

Jackson finished the game with 295 yards passing and 162 yards rushing on the night, however, according to Mullen, he felt he could have done more.

"There's a lot of great players out there".

If people in Gainesville feel they have to devote resources to Irma recovery efforts, this game won't be played on the University of Florida campus. Jackson has not been embroiled in rumors of misconduct like Winston was, and plays for a football program that has only recently made their mark on the national scene. But as long as he's there, Louisville is a contender. In just two games, the dual threat quarterback has racked up 1,010 total yards and eight total touchdowns, surging up the board to become the new Heisman favorite. It was his ninth consecutive game with at least one rushing touchdown.

There's really no need to sell this game: anyone who enjoys betting on college football will be glued to their screens. After becoming the youngest player ever to win the Heisman Trophy last season at 19, he could very well earn the award a second time this year. That's the reason he's now the highest paid assistant coach in the nation, making $1.7 million a year. The Longhorns beat San Jose State, but that hardly inspires confidence after a home loss to Maryland to start the season.

That's what keeps the 46-year-old Venables around when he would certainly be a coveted target in the annual coaching carousel. With that said, they boast one of the best defenses in the country, anchored by Christian Wilkins and Clelin Ferrell. "I just want to be great at what I'm doing". Louisville's offense has plenty of skill, like receiver Jaylen Smith, but a retooled offensive line doesn't bode well against a Tigers defense that's littered with first round talent.

The Buzz: The Penn State tailback rushed for 88 yards and a touchdown during the Nittany Lions' 33-14 win over Pitt Saturday. Coincidentally enough, the reigning Heisman victor held an offer from Clemson as a recruit and at one point considered a career in Death Valley.

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. I enjoy that a lot better. That said, Clemson's offense is not as explosive as it was a season ago, but it is still early.

If the Cardinals hope to break the losing streak to the Tigers and notch their first win over a defending national champion - they are 0-3 when playing a defending national champion - it will be because of a complete effort.
