3 takeaways from the victory over Louisville

"I feel like we'll play good". "When they pin their ears back, it's pretty impressive".

In the past 16 seasons, only four players have gone on to win the Heisman after suffering a loss in the first month of the season: USC's Carson Palmer in 2001, Florida's Tim Tebow in 2007, Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel in 2012 and Alabama's Derrick Henry in 2015. Clemson is the defending national champion and is now ranked No. 3 in the country. The Tigers offense struggled, but their defense was untouchable in a 14-6 win over Auburn.

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

Junior Jaylen Smith is Jackson's favorite target and has 17 receptions for a 17.6-yard average in two games.

Where the Tigers went wrong after halftime was giving Jackson too many opportunities, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said.

Jackson won the pair's only meeting in high school, leading Boynton Beach Community to a pair of wins over Mullen's Coconut Creek as a senior in 2014 before heading of to Louisville. But as long as he's there, Louisville is a contender.

This is the one very large game of the week.

Clemson's elite defense doesn't figure to allow for a shootout with Louisville akin to the last time cousins Trayvon Mullen and Lamar Jackson faced off on the field, but Jackson's wizardry makes anything possible.

Clemson's sustained success is built of deeper stock. What I can be sure about is that the victor of this high-stakes game will have the inside track to a college football playoff berth ... His 300 total yards are just over half of last season's total (599) and given Jackson the go-to guy he has sought. UVa, with a trip to Boise State looming, needs this more.

"I look forward to trying a sip of my Six & Twenty winning after the Cards win, although I still have my doubts about any bourbon that's not made in Kentucky", he said. I'm just ready to compete with him, and it's just going to be a challenge.

Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables sees a capable Louisville offensive line. The color scheme popular with players was last worn on October 14 in an ACC win over Duke.

Clemson dominated to the point that a 14-6 lead seemed insurmountable.

Jackson dented Clemson for 457 total yards and three touchdowns last season, though the Tigers survived, 42-36. Give us the Bulldogs not just to cover the spread but to pull off the big upset here and win outright, exactly how our numbers see it. But I'm going to say Deon Cain. 7 because of Hurricane Irma, the Tigers' visit to Louisville takes center stage, with Atlantic Division stakes firmly on the line so early in the season.

Question: Quarterback Deshaun Watson replaced Clemson great Tajh Boyd and took the Tigers to a new level.

A huge difference between the Jackson who awed the college football world past year and the one who is again performing at a high level this fall, is that he is going through his passing progressions. It costs a lot of money to manufacture Kryptonite, but his value in building what's becoming a Clemson dynasty is priceless.
