Swinney added that the junior quarterback looks like a bigger, stronger and more complete player in 2017 compared to last season-when Clemson barely avoided a season-changing loss to the Cardinals.
Saturday was Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant's first road start of his career, but it became quickly apparent there were no nerves to speak of.
The Tigers managed just 26 yards in first four series, punting three times and fumbling once deep in their own territory that led to an Auburn field goal.
While Jackson will have to be almost flawless to beat out the likes of Baker Mayfield, Mason Rudolph and Saquon Barkley to successfully defend his Heisman Trophy, the junior is talented enough to pull off a miracle. Clemson wins, 35-27. Hyatt has been a starter since the day he arrived at Clemson and has the feet, range, strength and flexibility to play very well on the left side. "The more you see of it, the more sick you get".
Jackson is averaging over 500 all-purpose yards per game so far this year.
"BRYANT'S TIME: Clemson defensive end Austin Bryant always believed he'd make a mark with the Tigers".
That's what Clemson did in the opening half, perhaps best remembered for former linebacker Ben Boulware choking Jackson on a tackle. Jackson seems ready to take it another step, too, however. After allowing only three points in their 56-3 victory over Kent State in Week 1, the Tigers defense shined again in Week 2 allowing six points in a 14-6 victory over Auburn. "He's still a guy that you can be in great position on but you've still got to get your hands on him and get him down, and that's easier said than done".
"It's great to win a game like that", he said Monday.
Jackson has had a fast start to the season. In the 10 100-yard rushing games Jackson has posted the last two seasons, he's had an Opportunity Rate below 50 percent just once - the win over Purdue two weeks ago.
But All-American defensive tackle Christian Wilkins has done an excellent job of taking on that leadership role.
Fisher, however, is also confident in his team's abilities, despite having lost to Clemson in all three games played since Louisville joined the ACC. He keeps people in line and the defensive front at home.
Making matters even more hard for Clemson is that the Tigers have so many new starters on offense. Louisville and defending Heisman Trophy-winner Lamar Jackson face an uphill battle on both fronts now. He came up just short last season, but the homefield boost could be enough to swing the game this time around.
"When you're playing good opponents, you're going to make mistakes", he said. As bad as things were for Jackson, it's much worse for their defense. Get all of the latest lines that you need to get a piece of the action!
