The Clemson Tigers turned to their defense to defeat a determined Louisville 20-17 in week four to up their record to 3-0. The Tigers had the best of it in the boxscore with just over 400 yards while the Cardinals were held to 272 yards but received a 100 yard kick return to help them on the scoreboard. Deshaun Watson made a few nice plays in the air on a 21-30 effort for 199 yards with a pair of touchdowns although two picks hurt but he did give Clemson another 54 yards on the ground on 12 carries. Wayne Gallman was the Tigers main man in the rushing attack with 139 yards on 24 carries while Jordan Leggett and Hunter Renfrow snagged 25 yard and 32 yard scoring tosses.
The over is 4-0 in Fighting Irish last 4 games following a ATS win and is 5-0 in Fighting Irish last 5 road games while the Fighting Irish are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games in October. The under is 6-0 in Tigers last 6 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game and the Tigers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games while going 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games. I think both defenses play a major roll in what should be a close, low scoring affair…
