LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The quarterback angle is irresistible, the main reason why ESPN’s College GameDay is hard by the Ohio River: Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson vs. Clemson’s defense, perhaps the best in the nation; Deshaun Watson’s replacement Kelly Bryant vs. his first hostile stadium.
Blocking and running back execution was critical in Clemson’s 42-36 victory over Louisville last year as Wayne Gallman rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries.
Elon, coming off a 34-31 victory at Furman is led by Curt Cignetti, Nick Saban’s first recruiting coordinator at Alabama.
Coastal Carolina at UAB Osharmar Abercrombie rushed for 149 yards and two touchdowns in the Chanticleers’ 38-28 upset victory over UMass.
Purdue at Missouri Mizzou head coach Barry Odom fired defensive coordinator Demontie Cross, citing “philosophical differences,” following last week’s 31-13 loss to South Carolina.
