Dominant Defense Leads #3 Clemson To 14-6 Win Over #13 Auburn

Greg McElroy: Auburn WRs must bounce back from 'very disappointing' Week 1 for Tigers to beat Clemson

Auburn comes into the game following a comfortable 41-7 win over Georgia Southern in Week 1, although there are still question marks on both sides of the ball despite the wide margin of victory.

"It hurts a lot, because we're pouring our guts out out there, playing hard", senior safety Tray Matthews said. Auburn PK Daniel Carlson is the school's all-time scoring leader with 371 points and holds 12 Auburn kicking records. The defense overshadowed an impressive offensive performance, as the Tigers racked up 535 total yards even without star running back Kamryn Pettway, who served a one-game suspension. Tight end Mike Gesicki had two touchdown receptions and Barkley ran for 88 yards to help Penn State ended a two-game skid against the Panthers.

Auburn's backfield will bring some heft, and the team has a new quarterback in Jarrett Stidham, who passed for more than 1,200 yards as a starter in four games for Baylor two seasons ago.

However, things don't get any easier for the Tigers as they head to Louisville to face reigning Heisman Trophy victor Lamar Jackson and a risky Cardinals' offense. It was a major statement on the national stage, the Tigers showing that they intend to make another run at the playoffs despite losing numerous players who led them to the national championship last season.

"We're going to be a good offense when it's all said and done".

"We had too many negative plays".

Carlton Davis made 11 solo tackles to lead No. 13 Auburn's defense.

Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn confirmed in his "Tiger Talk" weekly radio call-in show that Johnson hadn't practiced during the week. "That's a very good offense".

The Clemson football offense looked like a completely different unit after Bryant came back from the injury he suffered.

In the third quarter, Marlon Davidson caused a fumble, with Tray Matthews recovering, to give the Tigers an opportunity to close the gap.

Auburn's offense managed just 117 total yards and gained 48 yards on its final 11 drives, which totaled 50 plays.

Stidham led the offense on a 15-play, 69-yard march on the game's opening drive that sucked almost eight minutes off the game clock and made Auburn (1-1) just the second team in the last 18 games to score against Clemson (2-0) on its opening drive.

No one will say that after Saturday night's 14-6 win against Auburn.

The visiting Tigers led 7-6 at the half. Auburn ran 15 plays on its opening drive. "You get into that, you're going to ride the roller coaster, so we don't allow it, and we hammer it home".

Auburn had several chances to score in the second half, forcing a Clemson fumble in the third quarter, and four consecutive Clemson punts.

Making his second career start - and first against a ranked opponent - Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant completed 19 of 29 passes for 181 yard with no touchdowns and no interceptions. "There's no doubt about that".
