The Clemson football team will travel up to Louisville, Kentucky for their first test of the season. Here are the players to watch Thursday.

The Clemson football vs. Louisville Cardinals game is just two days away and there are a lot of unknowns for both teams. For example, Clemson’s defense dominated the first two games, but how will they do on the road against a much more talented Louisville team.

For the Cardinals, the questions are much steeper. Why did they lose to Houston? Who will the quarterback be this week? What problems do they need to fix in order to bounce-back and have a good season. All of those questions will be answered, but Louisville fans, players, and coaches alike would love nothing more than to beat Clemson at home on national television.

With that being said, Clemson is the more talented team, but my main concern is all the inexperience. The Tigers are going to need some players to step up and play well in order to come out with a victory. Here are the five players to watch for Clemson football this coming Thursday.
