Expert Predictions for Week 3 in College Football

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney celebrates after the NCAA college football playoff championship game against Alabama Tuesday Jan. 10 2017 in Tampa Fla. Clemson won 35-31

The Cardinals have looked really impressive on the offensive side of the ball, scoring nearly at will the first two weeks. Two of these teams are Clemson and Louisville.

Nevertheless, Clemson has still impressed us this season.

Tiger's quarterback Kelly Bryant is a dual-threat problem himself, so I'm sure he'll give the Louisville defense problems too. "It's about getting one step closer to our ultimate goal of a national championship". Despite early turnovers, Mayfield dominated the Buckeyes' secondary as he passed for 386 yards and three touchdowns. Deshaun Watson, who was a first-round draft pick of the Houston Texans, rallied the Tigers with two fourth quarter touchdown passes.

Often, quarterbacks get too much credit or too much blame.

Utah State (1-1) at Wake Forest (2-0), 3 p.m.: The Aggies won 36-24 at home past year in the first meeting between the two teams. It wasn't until Bryant took a hard hit that knocked the wind out of him and went to the sidelines for a few snaps that Clemson's offense got going.

However, the main reason for the Tigers' success this season is its defense. I'm not convinced by what I've seen from Clemson's offense, so I'll take the home dog. One player, in particular, to look out for is a junior defensive end, Austin Bryant. While Jackson's arm and feet seized control of both contests for the Cardinals, they can't be so giving against defending national champion and third-ranked Clemson in Saturday night's Atlantic Coast Conference showdown. The Louisville Cardinals have won nine of their last 10 home games. Jackson, on the other hand, still seemed to be a relative unknown heading into the 2017 campaign, and many around the country would be hard-pressed to identify the Louisville quarterback. Louisville coach Bobby Petrino believes his defense must become stingier to finally beat the Tigers after losing the three previous meetings by a total of 15 points. Jackson's 505 average total yards per game are more than 104 FBS teams have compiled, including Clemson. A loss would mean Tennessee starts SEC season behind the 8-ball, and the weight on Butch Jones' shoulders will only grow heavier. Venables is the reigning Frank Broyles Award victor as the nation's best assistant coach trying to lead the Tigers to consecutive national championships. Jackson ran for 162 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns in last year's game but this season, he looks like a much more polished passer in the pocket. He has shown that the team will only go as far as he can take them which can potentially spell doom for the Cardinals. Clemson squandered a 28-10 halftime lead, but ultimately withstood a furious comeback attempt by Heisman victor Lamar Jackson and the Cardinals and held on to win 42-36 in Death Valley.

We know that resolving disputes by directly concerned parties to uphold freedom of navigation and over flight is China's position. India and Japan also condemned terrorism emanating from Pakistan and urged Islamabad to bring perpetrators of terror to justice.

Arjan Singh was a distinguished air warrior: PM Modi
Singh used to often tell reporters that the uniform which he wore after getting commissioned still fit him years after he retired. He was born on April 15, 1919 in Pakistan's Faisalabad in a military family and joined the air force when he was only 19 in 1938.

The Clemson defensive line will be a bear for the Louisville Cardinals' offensive line to hold at bay but they're capable, which showed in last week's 47-35 victory over the North Carolina Tar Heels.

As for my prediction, I have to side with the Tigers.

Louisville offered Mullen and was one of his five official visits. After becoming the youngest player ever to win the Heisman Trophy last season at 19, he could very well earn the award a second time this year.

P.S.: I already bet on Clemson at -3.

I see Clemson winning this game by double digits as Kelly Bryant rises up to the challenge once more. You can sign up for Sling TV's free 7-day trial. Once signed up, simply download the app for your computer or mobile device to start watching.
