Clemson Untouchable At Memorial Stadium

Home-field advantage has been taken to another level for Clemson, as the Tigers have won 11 straight true home games while outscoring opponents by an average of 31.5 points per game. That streak does come with a caveat, as the team did not face a single ranked opponent in that span. That will change when Clemson plays host to the Louisville Cardinals and Heisman favorite Lamar Jackson on Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of Clemson's last 16 games against teams with winning records.
  • Clemson is 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games in Week 5.
  • The total has gone OVER in 8 of Louisville's last 9 games.

Clemson’s defense has been absolutely dominant over the past two games, as they have surrendered just seven points and 226 yards – keep in mind those games came against South Carolina State and Georgia Tech. The offense still hasn’t fully caught up to its play of last season but has done a much better job protecting to football, with just one turnover in the past two games compared with five in the first two.

Jackson has led Louisville to the top-ranked offense in the nation, as the club is averaging 682 yards and 63.5 points per game so far this season. To put Jackson’s offense into perspective, he has passed for the ninth-most yards in the country while rushing for the fifth-most yards.
