How to Watch Clemson vs
The teams traded touchdowns in the first quarter with Bryant scoring on an 8-yard run and Jackson finding Charles Standberry for an 11-yard score, but it was all Clemson from that point forward.
If there were concerns that Clemson wouldn't have the manpower to replace a bevy of departed offensive stars, those have long since been overshadowed by what is clearly one of the best defenses in the nation, with the Tigers utterly flustering the reigning Heisman Trophy victor in a 47-21 win over No. 14 Louisville.
"They're very good up front", Louisville coach Bobby Petrino said, per STATS LLC.
"The environment at Louisville, it's probably one of the loudest stadiums we'll play at this year". They completely shut down the prolific Auburn running game and demolished quarterback Jarrett Stidham, sacking him 11 times. They've given up just nine points this season - Louisville has scored more than that in five of eight quarters this year - and are second nationally with just 118 yards allowed per game. He has also rushed for 239 yards and three touchdowns. Bad teams are also prone to having bad defenses, which would theoretically make it easier to run wild. Jones had 305 yards passing and 108 yards rushing in a 41-17 rout of Northwestern. The Tigers will be challenged by Lamar Jackson, Louisville'sHeisman Trophy victor, which is the matchup everyone wants to see. Both of which will be featured in this weeks marquee matchup, Clemson vs Louisville. Clemson's defense versus Louisville's offense is strength versus strength.
Given new life, Tennessee made the most of its extra chance, racing 80 yards in five plays, mostly on the legs of John Kelly, including a 34-yard burst that pulled the Vols to within 13-10 with 8:36 remaining.
Vanderbilt last went 3-0 in 2011 under first-year coach James Franklin before going on to consecutive 9-4 seasons.
Will Kelly Bryant show up on the road?
NFL: Dolphins-Bucs will not be played in Miami this week
Bucs-Dolphins game likely to be rescheduled for Week 11 (Nov. 19), when both teams have a bye, per @JeffDarlington . We expect the league officials to take some time and weigh in on those factors that will determine the decision.
We've been saying since the season began that Bryant didn't have to be spectacular for Clemson to be very good again given the caliber of the Tiger defense. The junior QB has basically been Clemson's entire offense as the Tigers have failed to establish a consistent running attack through two games. It's early in the season and plenty for them to live up to, but with this convincing win over a team that features one of college football's best players, it might do them wonders. They always have a great defense with a real strong defensive front.
Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell said those who went him against him a year ago are more wary this time. The two teams have played close games in each of the past three seasons, with Clemson winning all.
While it's obviously true, it's not as if Watson went home empty-handed when the season was over. They will have the benefit of neither this time around and losing the turnover battle on the road could ultimately mean losing the game. It was an outstanding defensive performance from the Tigers despite playing without safety Van Smith and cornerback Marcus Edmund, the latter of whom should be back for this game.
"I noticed that they've got a lot of real good players, a lot of talented athletes, a lot of talented players", Mullen said. That cost Jackson a lot of production on the ground, officially.
Kansas State quarterback Jesse Ertz (511 yards, four touchdowns, no interceptions) takes care of the ball, too.
