Venables: 'I was pretty dizzy holding my breath'

Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables said he was pretty dizzy during Saturday’s 42-36 win over No. 4 Louisville. Why? Because he was holding his breath every time the Cardinals’ Lamar Jackson touched the football.

Jackson totaled 457 yards against the Tigers vaunted defense and totaled three touchdowns, but in the end, Clemson’s defense made the key stop with 33 seconds left in lifting the No. 3 Tigers to victory.
