The Storylines

Saturday night’s contest between No. 1 Clemson and No. 7 Miami has a similar feeling of the 2016 Clemson - Louisville matchup between Deshaun Watson and Lamar Jackson. Fast forward four years later, and this is Clemson’s biggest home game since that night. 

Tonight’s game features two of the nation’s top quarterbacks in Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence and Miami’s D’Eriq King with offenses that are loaded with talent for the Tigers including wide receiver Amari Rodgers and running back Travis Etienne and for the Canes, tight end Brevin Jordan and defensive end Quincy Roche.

Both defenses are loaded with talent such as Andrew Booth for the Tigers and as Quincy Roche for the Canes as we mentioned as well. Since 2016, Clemson and Miami rank No. 1 and No. 2 in both sacks and tackles for loss. One key factor to watch will be who can win the battle up front. Whoever can will have an edge in tonight’s game. 


Spend this evening’s game with us in this thread with the CST Staff!

Good evening everyone! We are a little over an hour (about 7:40 or so) from kickoff in what is the most highly anticipated game inside Death Valley in four years. How are you all feeling about tonight?

Arkansas up on Auburn 28-27....I said on the show yesterday that was a game to watch....also the A&M vs. Florida game played out about like I thought.

Here we go! Excited to see the defensive gameplan. I think you'll be seeing Booth and Kendrick one on one a LOT in this one. Make their WRs make plays outside, which they haven't proven they can do.

No doubt. This AU vs Arkansas game too...plus Pitt hit a 58 yarder to tie their game with BC with under one min. left.

Shades of 2015! Not sure we've seen that TE screen since that game.

Roche was offsides on the 4th down there and the Tigers dodge a bullet. Would've been Lawrence's first INT of the year. And Braden Galloway makes them pay with a touchdown. 7-0 Tigers.

Like the call from the coaching staff with the 4th down call there. Can't be ease your way into the game when you have an explosive offense like Miami on the other end. D'Eriq King and the U's offense on deck.

Miami looks a little shook early. Reminding me a little of 2016 Louisville.

One way to keep a scrambling QB from scrambling? Blitz every lane.

Like the aggression from Clemson's defense early. Baylon Spector with two big hits on D'Eriq King... sending a message to Miami offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee and their offense.

I agree. Clemson's been in games like this and looks very composed. Miami looked shaky on that opening drive.

A lot of ETN in the pass game early. Using the pass to open the run.
