Defending champs get better of Heisman winner

No. 3 Clemson traveled to Kentucky to face No. 14 Louisville at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium Saturday night in what was slated to be a rematch of last-year's thriller at Memorial Stadium.

In only the fourth-ever matchup featuring the defending Heisman winner and national champion, the Tigers got the better of the Cardinals in a dominating 47-21 win to improve to 3-0 (1-0 ACC) on the season. 

Although Jackson still managed 381 total yards and three touchdowns (all passing), Clemson's defense kept the Cardinals offense at bay, holding them to only one score through three quarters. 

In his first career road start, Tigers quarterback Kelly Bryant shined, going 22-of-32 for 316 yards and a touchdown to go along with his two rushing scores.
