Clemson notes: Clemson defense as advertised

10 September, 2017, 12:42 | Author: Nora May
  • Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant looks to pass against Auburn during the first half of an NCAA college football game Saturday Sept. 9 2017 in Clemson S.C

Pettway was suspended for Auburn's first game against Georgia Southern and he had zero carries this time a year ago when Clemson beat Auburn before becoming the SEC's leading rusher.

Stidham finished with just 79 yards passing.

Of course, Auburn's attack is predicated on powerful running, but there was little to no success to be had there either. "We've got to be able to run, play action and we will get better, I promise you that".

Until that score, Auburn held the upper hand for much of the half. 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.

Just to get this out of the way, it's only Week 2 of the college football season. All it took was a matchup with the Clemson defense to deflate the enthusiasm.

Upon returning, Bryant brought the Clemson offense to life.

Bryant returned to the game for Clemson football and led the offense to their first points with 48 seconds left in the first half. Kenny Hill served up an interception in TCU territory with the game knotted at 7-7, but Arkansas's ensuing drive stalled at the goal line and Cole Hedlund could not convert a 23-yard field goal on the first play of the second quarter.

Approximately 100 dogs airlifted out of Texas, following Harvey's catastrophic flooding
Rescue efforts are underway for pets and animals across Texas, with many shelters and good Samaritans helping stranded animals. Both organizations are heading to Texas and Louisiana with a 50-foot animal rescue vehicle and 100,000 pounds of pet food.


Clemson's defensive line was the key in their effort tonight as they sacked star quarterback Jarrett Stidham 11 times.

And while nobody's ready to proclaim Bryant the next coming of Deshaun Watson, Bryant's toughness shone through against an Auburn defense that's menacing in its own right.

That defense didn't have a great beginning, in part due to penalties.

Auburn managed 20 total yards in the entire second half on six possessions, the tone being set by Tre Lamar's fourth-and-three sack around midfield in the third quarter. Clemson spent time this offseason trying to avoid pass interference calls but struggled doing so early on in Saturday's game.

"The Auburn Tigers lost this game".

Auburn Head Coach Gus Malzahn did not confirm this after Saturday's 14-6 loss, however, and said there was no concern. Auburn allowed 19 sacks total in 2016, but the 2017 campaign sees the Tigers sitting at a tally of 14 sacks allowed already.

"A lot of people are going to try to break us up between offense and defense, but the thing is we're the Auburn Tigers".
