Blue Chip Depth Chart Analysis: Clemson at Louisville Preview

One of the most exciting games of 2016 came when the red hot #3 Louisville Cardinals visited to Death Valley. The #5 Tigers were surprising underdogs at home, but took an commanding 28-10 lead into halftime. Turnovers turned the tide in the second half and allowed the Cardinals to score 26 unanswered points and claim a late eight-point lead.

Clemson, truly showing the heart of a champion, did not break. Instead, the offense marched down the field and scored on a Watson-to-Williams TD reception. They’d fail on the game-tying two-point conversion. Despite what had to be crippling fatigue from chasing down Lamar Jackson in a high-snap game (Louisville ended with 99 snaps), they got the ball back to the Tigers for one last offensive possession.
