Another week down, another fun college football weekend ahead.

Here are some key questions that will help determine who Week 3’s winners will be:

*Can Lamar Jackson crack what might be the nation’s best defense? (Clemson at Louisville, 8 p.m. ET, ABC)

It’s one thing to do a little damage against Clemson’s filthy defense. But before you can think about actually scoring points against the Tigers, you need to make sure that D doesn’t inflict damage on you.

The Tiger defense – particularly the front seven – had a lot of hype coming into the season. Considering how many key guys they returned from a championship-caliber unit, it made sense. Through two games, they’ve somehow managed to exceed expectations. 

In Week 2, Clemson notched 11 sacks against Auburn. Clemson has allowed nine points in eight quarters. The Tigers have allowed 80 total passing yards. Eighteen first downs.

You get the idea. These guys are dominant.

But so is Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, the most dynamic — if the not the best — player in the country. Question: What’s more absurd, the reigning Heisman winner’s stats through two games (1,010 yards of total offense, eight touchdowns) or the way in which he piled up those marks? Jackson is equal parts substance and style. That’s rare.
