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

In No. 3 Clemson's 14-6 win over No. 13 Auburn at Memorial Stadium, Clemson's defense showed up boldly all night long, giving the sometimes-struggling offense some wiggle room as the night unfolded.

In five games between them since 2007, Clemson has won three and Auburn has won two, with two of those games decided in overtime, two tied in the third quarter and last year's contest at Auburn decided only on the final play, when a Hail Mary pass was batted down and Clemson won 19-13.

"We've got really great players on the offensive side of the ball and I've seen that in camp". "Our defense showed up when it mattered".

Clemson had a pair of defensive pass interference calls in the first quarter that helped Auburn's offense stay on the field.

Iger said that earnings per share would be "roughly in line" with results for 2016, when it had per-share profit of $5.72. However, it appears they've come up empty in such a request, as both MCU and Star Wars movies will leave Netflix by 2019.

Instead, they should remember what happened next: With less than four minutes remaining in the half and down 6-0, Bryant completed 6 of 9 passes for 79 yards - including going 3 of 3 on third down - and ran in the go-ahead touchdown with 42 seconds remaining before halftime. They never scored again after the field goals, never converting for a touchdown. "It's something I pride myself on", Bryant said of his dominant game after struggling with an injury last season. Even after a punt return gave Auburn yet another chance late in the fourth quarter of a one-score game, three more sacks on consecutive snaps ended the threat. Auburn finished with eight tackles for loss. Dorian O'Daniel had a career-high 14 tackles and J.D. Davis picked up his first career sack.

Clemson's defense racked up a staggering 11 sacks, harassing Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham all game and holding him to just 79 yards passing.

"I tried to pick up some of the guys on offense", Matthews said. While Clemson outgained Auburn in yardage, Auburn continuously had an advantage in time of possession.

In Johnson's absence, junior Kamryn Pettway received his first start of the 2017 season after missing the season opener due to a suspension for a violation of team rules. On Saturday, he redeemed himself.

With the Heisman Trophy race and a national championship run potentially hanging in the balance, this is a matchup to relish. MI also moved into the Top 10 from No. 11 after beating Florida, which fell from No. 17 to No. 22 after that loss.

In total, Auburn managed 117 yards on 66 plays, an average of 1.8 yards per play.

Lawrence passed for 281 yards and two touchdowns last night in a 38-5 win over Westlake as Cartersville improved to 4-0.

Auburn had a new quarterback, but its offense looked all too familiar.
