Clemson is attempting to score at least 40 points in five straight games in a series with a single opponent for only the third time in school history. Clemson scored 42, 47, 77, and 45 points in its last four meetings with Louisville. Clemson scored at least 40 in six straight games against Presbyterian from 1947-52, in five straight games against SC State from 2008-21, and in four straight games against The Citadel from 2008-20. Louisville was the first current FBS program against which Clemson scored 40 points in four consecutive games in a series.

Good evening everyone! Clemson and Louisville will get going in about 20 minutes in the Derby City. Stay tuned for more updates and analysis throughout the evening.

Louisville receives the opening kickoff and we are underway from the Derby City.

Welcome, welcome, welcome!

On the record...I think D.J. Uiagalelei plays well tonight. I'll eat my words if I'm wrong.

A facemask penalty on Nolan Turner adds 15 yards to a first down completion on 3rd down. Louisville scores on the very next play with a 26-yard TD run from Jalen Mitchell up the gut and Louisville leads 7-0 with 12:08 to go in the first quarter.

Now can Clemson's offense come out and start fast? Would expect them to go with the hot hand with Will Shipley.

Kobe Pace gets the start for the Tigers at running back.

And the Tigers strike quickly -- 46-yard strike on the inside post from DJU to Beaux Collins, and that's what Clemson's offense has been missing all year: the big plays. So refreshing to see. We are tied at 7 with 11:09 to play in the first.

Looks like Malik Cunningham was down on the scramble there and was short of the first down. And Clemson will avoid another houdini act two weeks in a row.

Will Shipley caught the pass on the angle route but he's well short of the first down and Clemson will punt. Marcus Tate whiffed on the block that would've sprung him free. 8:17 to play in the first with Louisville taking over deep in their own territory. Tied at 7.

I think that was Marcus Tate-- but yes.

Timeout Clemson. They are facing 3rd and 11 when play resumes. Louisville is doing a good job of getting push on the Clemson DL right now.

Clemson is forced to punt. DJ tried to put that throw into a window that wasn't there and Louisville has the ball now on the move.

Will Brown muffs the punt after one of the blockers for Clemson bumps into to him. Louisville maintains possession.

Malik Cunningham goes down the left sideline on the option keeper and the Cards cash in on the takeaway. 27-yard TD run. Louisville leads 14-7 with 1:16 to play in the first.

I hope I'm wrong but:

We may be witnessing the evolution of CFB and the staleness of Dabo Swinney. Doing things the way we do them simply because "that's the way we've always done it" is a recipe for being left behind.

Louisville's Malik Cunningham has really impressed me with his ability to scramble and keep plays alive with his feet. The Cards kick a field goal to extend the lead to 17-7 with 10:32 to play before the half.

DJU is in the injury tent as he came up on a limp after an incompletion on the last drive. Taisun P came in and executed the zone read game as Clemson got something out of the drive. 17-10 Louisville with 5:44 to play before the half.

Davis Allen was wide open on the TD grab and the Tigers tie the game at 17. Great play design there.

Huge final drive there by Clemson to wrap up the half.

HALF: Clemson and Louisville are tied at 17. We'll see if the Tigers can create some separation in the second half. Offensively, I think they need to continue to implement the run game with Phil Mafah, hopefully Shipley can come back in the second half. Defensively, the defensive line has got to contain Malik Cunningham in the run game.

Clemson and Louisville-Tied at Half.

Gamecocks and Florida- Gamecocks up by 20 with 45 sec left until half.


I hope Dabo realizes that if we lose to USC this year, someone will be fired. It won't be him for sure, but it will be someone on his staff.

I'm not sure Mullen will make it back to Gainesville tonight. Wow.

BTW-- @BradyH - Thank you for supporting the site. I really appreciate it.

Yes sir. Love what you all are doing and love the Tigers.

I wholeheartedly believe the program will turn around and be back on top.

I'm just voicing the frustrations that I feel and believe many of us feel right now.

Not how you would like to start the second half. DJU is sacked and Louisville has the ball now as we're just getting started here in the second half.

Man, once Malik Cunningham turns the corner he can make something happen and he's done that several times tonight. This one is a 51-yard run for a score. Louisville back out in front, 24-17 with 11:29 to play in the 3rd.

Cunningham reminds me so much of Lamar Jackson.
