Picking the conference champs after Week 3

Clemson and Alabama seem like easy picks to win their leagues, but those are the only conference winners that Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay are in agreement on at this point.

Lack of blitz does the trick for Tigers

Clemson sent five or more pass-rushers on just 13 percent of QB Lamar Jackson's dropbacks Saturday at Louisville, the second-lowest blitz percentage the reigning Heisman winner has faced in a start in his career.

Clemson certainly deserves consideration as the No. 1 team in the country after dominating performances against consecutive ranked teams. Not only has the defense been suffocating, Kelly Bryant has shown clear command as the new leader of the Tigers' offense.

Deshaun Watson tweeted, mid-game tonight, that Kelly Bryant would be even better than he was. Right now, it doesn't seem so crazy. Clemson is demolishing Louisville, and Bryant has 308 yards and 3 TDs.

A week after dominating Auburn with 14 tackles and 1.5 sacks, Clemson LB Dorian O'Daniel with a monster pick six off Lamar Jackson, puts Clemson up 26-7 midway through the third.

It's no surprise Clemson is ahead 19-7 at the half. The Tigers led Louisville 28-10 at halftime last year. More surprising? Kelly Bryant has more than doubled Lamar Jackson's offensive output in the first half, 273 to 130.

Louisville was just 5-of-11 for 42 yards targeting wide receivers in the first half, while averaging 9.8 yards per designed run. The play selection though: 22 pass plays, 9 runs.

Well, Kelly Bryant has already topped Deshaun Watson in one regard: His 79 yard touchdown pass to Ray-Ray McCloud is Clemson's longest play since Nov 2, 2013, when Tajh Boyd hit Sammy Watkins for a 96-yarder vs Virginia.
