As for the here and now, tonight's game in Clemson marks a return of Kevin Steele, the defensive coordinator Dabo Swinney fired a few years ago, and he'll have in his arsenal a defensive tackle who may be the Auburn player who poses Clemson the most problems, Derrick Brown. "What a tough, gritty game". In the second half, Auburn had six drives; five ended in punts, and one ended on a turnover on downs.
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.
"Well certainly we got a lot of work to do, but this is Game 2 of what's going to be a long season", offensive line coach Herb Hand said during a postgame radio interview. "The last drive before the half was a thing of beauty. We ask all fans traveling to the area to be patient and plan for possible extended time getting into and out of town on game day".
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.

In total, Auburn managed 117 yards on 66 plays, an average of 1.8 yards per play.
Bryant completed 19 of 29 passes for 181 yards, but it was his running ability that keyed the victory.

Ray-Ray McCloud: Deon Cain and Hunter Renfrow draw more attention at wide receiver, but McCloud was so solid Saturday as a pass-catcher. All it took was a matchup with the Clemson defense to deflate the enthusiasm.
Bryant did what he needed to: Kelly Bryant was far from spectacular, but he didn't need to be. "Clemson is very good up front, I think everybody knows that, but at the same time I really believe, I know it sounds simple but you have to be able to run the football and you have to have yourself in third-down situations where it's not third-and-long and they can pin your ears back".
There is unprecedented territory surrounding the #3 Clemson Tigers.
