Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables enjoys a challenge under most circumstances. He isn’t thrilled about the one his defense has this week.

The Tigers will try to slow Heisman winner Lamar Jackson and Louisville’s potent offense Saturday night at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium in a rematch of last year’s game that was decided in the final seconds.

This year’s matchup is again expected to come down to the wire as Louisville is No. 5 in the nation in total offense at 614.5 yards per game, while Clemson is second in total defense at 118.5 yards per game.
