The plays

Louisville Cardinals at No. 10 Clemson Tigers (-7, 52)

The Bear: Typically this would be a logical play of Clemson coming off a blowout loss, but I'm not seeing that here. It's impossible to see how either quarterback has any confidence right now. Louisville has strung together four straight wins and has surprisingly played very well on the defensive side of the ball much of the year. Clemson's defense may carry them to a win, but I'd be surprised if it were easy.
