On the flip side, Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant provided just enough offense, rushing for two touchdowns that proved to be the difference in the game.

"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.

Auburn's defense looked to be the tougher unit to start the game, but just when it looked like it might score a knockout blow, Clemson turned the game around. They probably would have understood if he tried to minimize the number of hits he took from the Auburn defense, which were numerous.

Bryant's playmaking ability with his feet opened up the passing game for Clemson, though not a strong one, as Byrant completed 19 of 29 passes for 181 yards. Auburn allowed 19 sacks total in 2016, but the 2017 campaign sees the Tigers sitting at a tally of 14 sacks allowed already.

The offensive line appeared overwhelmed, quarterback Jarrett Stidham never found a rhythm and the receivers had no luck gaining separation from Clemson's cornerbacks.

The Tigers had 11 sacks with Austin Bryant leading the way with four. The Kerryon Johnson injury didn't help matters either, but Malzahn said the team hopes to have him back "in the near future". "We're going to regroup and we're going to be a lot better". "But offensively we just didn't get it done".

The Tigers limited Auburn to an astonishingly low 117 total yards in the game, which becomes even more impressive when you consider that Auburn picked up 69 of those yards on their opening drive. "For us, that's what we've got to be able to do". "I don't know. We'll find out". Clemson WR Deon Cain has 15 touchdowns on only 76 career receptions, which translates to a score every 4.93 catches. Auburn PK Daniel Carlson is the school's all-time scoring leader with 371 points and holds 12 Auburn kicking records.

If they can knockoff the defending national champions on the road, it will prove that Auburn is ready to be a serious threat in the SEC and national picture.

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.
