Eating the elephant, nooners and uniforms: Swinney talks Louisville

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney met with the media following Wednesday’s practice, and he was asked about this weekend’s matchup with No. 3 Louisville in Death Valley. Swinney broke into a big smile and said he’s just as excited as the fans about what’s on tap starting at 8:22 p.m. Saturday night.


Venables on Lamar Jackson: Only so much you can do
Brent Venables isn’t ready to quit his job as scout team quarterback. Not yet. Not with Louisville coming to town. Venables met with the media Tuesday and admitted this is just the beginning of a long week.


Bobby Petrino on Clemson: "It's a loud place"
If the Louisville Cardinals are to take the next step in the ACC, they have to go through Florida State and Clemson to make it to the ACC Championship. Part one has been accomplished.


Clemson defense set for tough test
Throughout this week, Clemson’s showdown with Louisville is going to be made out to be Deshaun Watson vs. Lamar Jackson. But really, it’s about Jackson and his high-powered offense vs. the stingy Clemson defense. Jackson hasn’t seen anything like Clemson’s defense this season, but the Tigers’ defense hasn’t seen anything like Jackson either. Photo by Jamie Rhodes / USATODAY


Swinney says Louisville has a "bit more pizzazz"
The fifth-ranked Clemson football team sits at 4-0 as they prepare to take on third-ranked Louisville this week, but if they want to improve to 5-0 and 2-0 in ACC play they will have to have their best effort of the season.
