The Clemson football team will travel up to Louisville this weekend. Here’s a look at five Tigers to keep your eyes on during the ACC matchup.

The Clemson football team is coming off an impressive 45-14 win over Florida State this past Saturday in Death Valley.

Now, the Tigers will hit the road for the third time this season to take on yet another ACC opponent: The Louisville Cardinals.

Coming into this season, Louisville was expected to be at the bottom of the ACC Atlantic Division and many wondered if the Cardinals would come away with many wins at all. Through the first six games of the year, Louisville has certainly been a surprise. The Cardinals are currently 4-2 with their only losses coming to Notre Dame and Florida State.

According to many metrics, Louisville has one of the top offenses in the country. The Cardinals beat Wake Forest 62-59 this past weekend.

With that amount of firepower, we could see Louisville give the Clemson football defense a bit of trouble if the Tigers don’t come out prepared and ready to go.

The Clemson football team should have plenty of motivation to remain focused, though. The Tigers dropped another spot in the AP Poll down to No. 3 and are now behind both Alabama and LSU.

Many analysts are making the case that Clemson doesn’t even deserve to be in the top-four, so there’s plenty of reason to believe that the Tigers will continue to try and make statements in the coming weeks.

Here are five Clemson football players to watch as we head into the matchup with Louisville.
