Auburn vs. Clemson live stream

A national television audience, a raucous crowd in Memorial Stadium and many promising recruits are slated to be on hand for tonight's prime-time showdown of ACC and SEC Tigers, including Clemson commitment Trevor Lawrence, who's seemed to add to his status as the nation's top quarterback prospect in the early going at Cartersville High School in Georgia.

"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. Expect Malzahn and offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey to throw more on first down than Auburn has in the past, loosen up the defense deep downfield and with intermediate passes over the middle, and then shut the door late with Pettway and the running game.

Defense steps up for No. 3 Clemson vs. Clemson finished with 14 tackles for loss and 11 sacks.

Star of the game: Austin Bryant - The junior defensive end had a coming out party with four sacks as Clemson's defensive line dominated the game. Although Auburn's defense carried it throughout the night-much like in last season's meeting between the two teams - it wasn't enough as the offense that was supposed to be buoyed by the returns of running back Kamryn Pettway and wide receiver Kyle Davis mustered just 117 yards of total offense and allowed 11 sacks on the night. Bryant appeared to be just fine. The Kerryon Johnson injury didn't help matters either, but Malzahn said the team hopes to have him back "in the near future". "We played with a lot of effort".
