Clemson sacks Auburn's upset bid

Clemson sacks Auburn's upset bid”

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.

"To come right back out in the third quarter and go right back down the field, that really was the difference in the game", Swinney said. He didn't want to put the onus on Auburn's offensive line, which has allowed 22 tackles for loss and 14 sacks in two games, and said their performance was not "frustrating" to him. All it took was a matchup with the Clemson defense to deflate the enthusiasm. As a team, TCU muscled to 195 yards and four touchdowns on 42 carries, while Hill hit 21-of-31 passes for 166 yards.

All eyes will be on Kelly Bryant as he faces his first major test as Clemson's starting quarterback, of course, and fellow Upstate natives C.J. Fuller and Tavien Feaster will also be key for the Clemson offense at running back, but Travis Etienne is a Clemson back to be reckoned with, too.

Stidham, a highly-publicized transfer from Baylor brought in to revitalize one of the nation's worst pass offenses from a year ago, finished just 13 of 24 for 79 yards and was sacked 11 times by a dominating Clemson defensive front. After that, Clemson barely allowed them to move the ball.

Austin Bryant finished with four sacks.

Auburn got off to a strong start and controlled the game for much of the first half, but Auburn settled for field goals over touchdowns early - something it could ill afford to do against the defending national champions. "I don't know. We'll find out". The Spring game got thrown in the trash when he hurt his finger. We didn't protect the quarterback when we needed to and we weren't able to effectively run the football.

They are of course down receivers James Quick (769 yards and six scores) and Jamari Staples (615 and two TDs) and tight end Cole Hikutini (668 yards and eight TDs), a group that helped the Cardinals produce 23 plays of 40 or more yards (14th in FBS). Auburn PK Daniel Carlson is the school's all-time scoring leader with 371 points and holds 12 Auburn kicking records. Last season, he rushed 209 times for 1,224 yards in just nine games.

According to the ESPN broadcast Saturday night, it only took two weeks of action for Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn to assume play-calling duties again.
