Defense highlights Auburn's first road game in top 15 clash

Fans roll Toomer's Corner

"I feel like I'm back at Alabama in 1988 after that one", Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said.

"We had too many negative plays".

"It's been a long time since we've played that dominant on defense in a long time". One of his passes went for 23 yards on Auburn's first drive.

Levy, a host turned play-by-play announcer, was on the call for the Clemson-Auburn game Saturday.

Bryant, who rushed for 68 yards on 19 attempts, scored on a 3-yard run with 48 seconds left in the first half, then scampered 27 yards for Clemson's second touchdown with 11:47 left in the third quarter to provide the Tigers with all the points they would need.

While the defense did allow Clemson to rack up 284 total yards, Auburn shut down the run game, allowing just 99 yards.

No one will say that after Saturday night's 14-6 win against Auburn.

The Clemson football program flexed their defensive muscles in a hard-fought, 14-6 win over the 13th ranked Auburn Tigers. Auburn settled for another Carlson field goal, this time from 28 yards out, after driving to the Clemson 6. That's 4.6 yards a completion.

The majority of Auburn's effectiveness was confined to the first half, where it managed two field goals on its first three possessions. He came back to lead Clemson's only first-half scoring drive. Bryant appeared to be just fine. But it's just a whole different deal to do it under the lights. There were a lot of things I could have done better tonight.

Aside from Kam Pettway's 79 yards rushing, Auburn's running game was virtually nonexistent as he was the only Auburn player in double-digits rushing. But that drive stalled inside the 10-yard line. Even more impressive, was the fact that Auburn was unable to run the football, which is a staple of their offense.

The 31-year-old Spaniard is 22-3 in Grand Slam semi-finals, winning the last 14 in which he has appeared. It is a first-ever Grand Slam semifinal for both men in the second match on Arthur Ashe .

Clemson's defensive coordinator had an answer for everything Auburn coach Gus Malzahn and his offense offense threw his way. After getting off to a shaky start, the Tigers defensive backs began to smother Auburn's wide receivers.

However, things don't get any easier for the Tigers as they head to Louisville to face reigning Heisman Trophy victor Lamar Jackson and a risky Cardinals' offense.

"We'll get better offensively, and we'll get this thing corrected", Malzahn said. "It's a different animal next week going against the Heisman Trophy victor - it's like playing against 12".

"We're going to be a good offense when it's all said and done".

The defending national champions looked sharp in their season-opener, topping Kent State 56-3, while quarterback Kelly Bryant led the offense for the first time since the legendary Deshaun Watson moved on to the NFL. This defense is undoubtedly championship caliber. But Clemson's defense kept Auburn out of the end zone, the visiting Tigers settling for a field goal. In all, nine players finished with a tackle for a loss. Bryant, Christian Wilkins, Clelin Ferrell and Dexter Lawrence, Clemson's starting front four, had 25 tackles and 6.5 sacks. You have to find ways to win games, especially early in the season, and I'm just really proud of our guys, particularly on defense. Clemson is 1-and-1 in those two games, their only loss coming against Pittsburgh. Now a resident of Orangeburg County, he reports on Clemson sports as a correspondent for The Times and Democrat.
