A scary collision occurred during Saturday's Clemson-Louisville game, but it wasn't between two players.

Louisville receiver Tutu Atwell made a terrific sideline catch late in the second quarter. His momentum carried him a few yards into Clemson's sideline before the receiver collided with a nearby table.

Atwell's head and neck area hit the table first before he slid underneath it.

Check out the video of the scary incident below.

Fortunately for everyone involved, Atwell stood up a few moments later. It doesn't appear he suffered anything serious.

It was also great to see the quick response from some of Clemson's staff. Several individuals immediately went and checked on the Louisville receiver.

The Cardinals are going need Atwell if they hope to narrow the current halftime deficit. Louisville is down 17-3 at the half, but the Cardinals have put up a good fight. The UL defense has done a great job confusing QB Trevor Lawrence and forcing him into bad decisions.

Lawrence has two picks already. You can read more about that here.

Despite Louisville's defensive effort, the team still finds itself down by two scores. The Cardinals will have to generate more big plays on offense to narrow the halftime deficit.
