No. 3 Clemson's offense needs to 'bring it' vs Louisville

Clemson has quickly shaken off all the doubt just two weeks in, as the Tigers replacements haven't missed a beat in their 2-0 start.

Vandy quarterback Kyle Shurmur has been flawless with 498 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions through two games.

All Jackson and the Louisville offense has to do is overcome what ESPN's Chris Low called "the new D-Line U" featuring All-American Christian Wilkins, junior Austin Bryant (school record 4 sacks against Auburn) and sophomore Clelin Ferrell.

Clemson's new quarterback, Kelly Bryant, can not produce such magic.

Last season was monumental for both Jackson and Mullen, the latter being part of Clemson's national championship team.

However, he has taken the hard path of going to people and now the debate about the sanctity of peoples' mandate has become a public debate.

Louisville's offense will be flawless reply to the Tigers defense as it is averaging 614.5 yards per game and takes the fifth spot nationally in total offense. If they hope to accomplish this hard feat, Lamar Jackson will have to lead the way.

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. After managing just 138 yards with no touchdowns and four sacks the first two quarters, Jackson erupted for 319 yards with three touchdowns with just one sack. Bad teams are also prone to having bad defenses, which would theoretically make it easier to run wild. Although Lamar Jackson should play well, the Tiger defense will likely keep him in check just enough to allow Clemson to steal a road win. He remains as electric as ever on the ground, and he looks as if he's improved as a passer. In a weekend with a number of lackluster matchups, Clemson vs. Louisville looms large.

The cousins' on-field rivalry continues Saturday, when Clemson travels to Louisville in what could be their final time playing each other in college. It's tough to envision Bryant outplaying Jackson, even with a stronger Clemson defense to help his cause.

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. Watson is now gone, as are many other key players from last season.

Bryant isn't being overlooked now. So who wins? Andrea Adelson and David Hale weigh in on that game, plus the rest of the ACC schedule. Kansas State has an offense capable of going on the road against an SEC team and physically dominating a game, but the defense is still a concern. Smith is the kind of big, tall, fast and physical receiver that National Football League clubs love. "He's a little bigger this year, too".

The turnover battle - As good as Clemson's defense has been this season, it still has yet to force a single turnover through two games. Don't forget this game had three overtimes.

While the Tigers were able to come away with the win last season despite a minus-two turnover differential, it must be noted that they were at home and they had Deshaun Watson.

"If Louisville is going to win this football game, it's not going to be just Lamar Jackson", Herbstreit said.

"He was in college when I was in my previous year of (high school) football, so that's when it kind of started", Mullen said. The Louisville Cardinals have won nine of their last 10 home games.
