ESPN's ACC Writers All Pick Clemson Over Louisville

There aren't a lot of people predicting a Cardinal upset in Death Valley this weekend, and the four ACC bloggers over at ESPN.com are no different.

Fortuna: If Louisville gets DeVante Parker back, the Cardinals will receive a huge offensive boost. And, frankly, they need it, as the unit has not looked all that great so far, ranking 13th in the ACC in yards per game. This matchup is also a nightmare for the Cards' offensive line, which has surrendered 19 sacks through six games and is walking into Death Valley to face arguably the best front seven in the league. Louisville's really, really good defense (first in the ACC in most major categories) will have to create some scoring opportunities for its offense. And while Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Grantham's unit is certainly capable of slowing down the sensation that is Deshaun Watson (and his talented group of pass-catchers), the mismatch on the other side of the ball will be just too much for Louisville to overcome.Clemson 28, Louisville 14

Well, that's just like, your opinions, men ... and woman.
