Clemson offers Lamar Jackson a chance to take the Heisman lead

Lamar Jackson's Heisman Test Versus Clemson

"It's going to be a loud environment, and so we've got to get some of that communication stuff cleaned up, and I'm confident we will". The Tigers will be challenged by Lamar Jackson, Louisville's Heisman Trophy victor, which is the matchup everyone wants to see.

Two series later, Clemson was in trouble after Ray-Ray McCloud's fumble left Auburn set up just 10 yards from a touchdown.

Let's go inside the numbers.

Anybody wondering if Jackson was a late bloomer morphing into college football's most exciting player and arguably its best overall can heed the words of Mullen. Jackson as the defending victor will surely end the regular season with monster numbers and will appear on enough ballots come December to find himself once again at the ceremony. Louisville coach Bobby Petrino believes his defense must become stingier to finally beat the Tigers after losing the three previous meetings by a total of 15 points.

This is how Louisville ended the 2016 contest against Clemson. Bad teams are also prone to having bad defenses, which would theoretically make it easier to run wild. Not bad for a football program that used to give tickets away to its games 30 years ago. "We're not trying to win the stats war", he said.

Lamar Jackson headlines this week's look at the top five Heisman Trophy candidates. That's how Jackson does a majority of his damage on the ground, although he is a unsafe scrambler. They know how to add a guy to the run box, so it's a really good challenge for us. I'm fascinated to see how Bobby Petrino uses Lamar Jackson knowing the middle of the field will likely be occupied by future National Football League defensive linemen. Bryant had a career-high 316 yards passing at a 22-for-32 clip. The key for both defenses will be attempting to make the opposing quarterback one-dimensional - Clemson must continue its excellent pass defense, while Louisville needs to limit Kelly Bryant in the running game.

Jackson has racked up 239 yards on the ground this season and three touchdowns on 40 attempts from scrimmage.

Since he entered the league in 2015, that's only been done four times.

Kendall Joseph (LB): Joseph has moved over a spot from middle linebacker to weakside linebacker, the position once held by former Tiger Ben Boulware.

Our two metrics do favor USF by slim margins but 17 is just too much. However, the Tigers aren't favorites to win this year's title and they have some convincing to do before the odds change their mind. The Tigers managed to outgain their opponent 665-120 in total yardage and were able to shutout Kent State despite turning the ball over once. But even more significant here is the home field. "First of all, we should have confidence that we're there and that we can play, but it is up to us to win the game". Sporting Tyrone Crowder and Mitch Hyatt, two of the ACC's best offensive linemen, Clemson's O-line is excellent.

These teams have faced off three times since Louisville joined the ACC, and all three games came down to the Cardinals' final drive, with all three resulting in Clemson wins.

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.

But with Watson and Williams first-round National Football League draft picks and five other starters gone from that group, Clemson's defense asserted itself so far this season - and made the case it might be the best in the country with its performance against Auburn.

Can Jackson get it done against the Tigers?

Coming off a loss to rival Penn State, seeing No. 9 Oklahoma State on the schedule is far from ideal for Pitt.
