Cardinals host Clemson in big ACC battle

17 September 2017

Last season against Virginia, Lamar Jackson officially ran for 88 yards.

Jackson passed for 317 yards and three TDs, but most of that came with things already in hand for Clemson (3-0, 1-0 ACC).

Third-ranked Clemson plays at No. 14 Louisville on Saturday night, and Clemson coach Dabo Swinney calls Jackson "crazy good".

"We just need to continue getting better technique-wise", senior linebacker Trevon Young said.

At least through two games, it appears Lamar Jackson has focused on proving that his passing game is as good as his running game.

However, the upward pressure on consumer prices is mostly the effect of the substantial depreciation of the GBP since late 2015. Part of the weak wage growth reflects a seven-year policy of public-sector wage restraint to help cut government borrowing.

The Cardinals crushed Florida State on the same field in a similar Atlantic Coast Conference showdown a year ago. However, the game might very well be decided by the other matchup between Clemson's offense and Louisville's defense. "They've always done a good job of running the football". The two best teams in the conference face off this weekend, meaning the victor moves into the driver's seat to get to the ACC Title game. The issue for Darnold may be that teammate Ronald Jones II might start stealing some votes with 275 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns through USC's first two games.

"There's a lot of great players out there". Clemson won last year's meeting in Clemson, 42-36.

"We've had some incredible battles with them and I don't expect this one to be any different", Swinney said, noting Louisville's 614.5-yard offensive average.

"Just really fun to watch", said Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables, a big smile on his face.

Clemson rallied and went on to win the national title. Questions about the offense after a 14-6 win over Auburn were effectively answered with their second 40-point effort in three games, this against a ranked opponent.

It wasn't pretty - especially on offense - but they did enough to get the win, so that is enough to earn them some decent grades. Over on the Bengals' side, they're now 0-1 as well after their 20-0 shutout defeat at the hands of the Ravens .

"As mayor of Clemson, I am proud to say both our football team and our SC bourbon will bring their A-game to the table", Cook said in the release. "We're not trying to win any points show".

"We have to be able to run the football", Williams said. We don't even so much talk about football and us playing; we just talk, just because we're cousins. The two teams have played close games in each of the past three seasons, with Clemson winning all. "There's a lot of opportunities".

It's scary to think that Jackson is improved from previous year, but that has certainly been the case over the season's first two games. I'd be thrilled if we could get an encore performance.

The Tigers will try to get pressure on Jackson the entire game on Saturday. He played a spot role when he returned and was not the player projected from the spring. In fact, Allen struggled when he faced a so-called "big school" earlier this season, as he threw for just 174 yards and two interceptions against the Iowa Hawkeyes, a team that plays in the Big 10. I think the thing we did past year is, we went out there and played fast. The crowd in Louisville should be fired up for the home opener in prime time, with College Gameday on site as a bonus.
