One year ago Clemson faced a Notre Dame team as their first real test of the season. Game Day was in town as was the byproduct of a hurricane. We all know how that one turned out. Once again Clemson will have to bring their own guys to win this one. The weather shouldn't be as much of a factor this year.
But will Clemson show up? That's the million dollar question and it is anyone's guess. The offense has been average this year, not something anyone expected. Thankfully the defense is as solid as ever. But without an offense we'll likely see a repeat of the 2014 game against UGA. Close until the defense tires in the 4th quarter.
As for that defense, how will they stop Lamar Jackson? The Louisville QB has had an excellent start of the season and Clemson's ability to contain him will go a long way to determining a winner.
As always join us below in the gamethread for this one, it should be fun.
