Things To Look For: #13 Auburn vs. #3 Clemson

Bryant, making his second career start, led Clemson on an 88-yard touchdown drive at the end of the first half to stake Clemson to a 7-6 halftime lead, and followed that gem with a 79-yard touchdown drive to open the third quarter. Auburn settled for another Carlson field goal, this time from 28 yards out, after driving to the Clemson 6.

CLEMSON | Auburn's defense did it's job - again, again and again. Zerrick Cooper took over for a cameo, but Clemson's fourth drive ended in a missed field goal. If that wasn't enough, Bryant came out in the third quarter, completed 3 of 4 passes for 46 yards and essentially put the game out of reach with a 27-yard touchdown run.

After that crushing series, Clemson saw the game out to victory and move to 2-0 on the season. After a back-and-forth showdown with the Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2016 National Championship, Clemson now stands at the top of the mountain as the reigning champions but with a new cast of characters at several positions.

Auburn held a talented Clemson offense to just 284 total yards, forced two turnovers and had eight negative plays including three sacks. After that, Clemson barely allowed them to move the ball.

Auburn running back Kerryon Johnson, who suffered a hamstring injury in last week's season-opening win against Georgia Southern, did not dress out for the game, but starter Kamryn Pettway did and was the Tigers' early workhorse, carrying 16 times for 59 yards in the first half and finishing with 74 yards on 22 carries. "Clemson had a lot to do with that, but we have to find ways to get it done".

"We had too many negative plays".

Auburn's defensive players made it clear that they weren't going to let Saturday night's performance divide the team.
