Greg McElroy: Auburn WRs must bounce back from 'very disappointing' Week 1 for Tigers to beat Clemson

Stidham, a highly-publicized transfer from Baylor brought in to revitalize one of the nation's worst pass offenses from a year ago, finished just 13 of 24 for 79 yards and was sacked 11 times by a dominating Clemson defensive front.

In the end, No. 3 Clemson beat No. 13 Auburn 13-6, AU's fifth-straight loss to a top 10 opponent.

"What a hard-fought, gritty game". In the second half, Auburn had six drives; five ended in punts, and one ended on a turnover on downs. Late in the second quarter, quarterback Kelly Bryant went down with an injury and Memorial Stadium went to a hush. I said it on SportsCenter and we talked about it earlier, but now there's a question mark if the running back is going to play. "The last drive before the half was a thing of beauty". Bryant broke a few Auburn tackles on his way to the endzone, providing the rest of Saturday-night's scoring. But after being checked by Clemson medical personnel, the 6-foot-4 junior was right back on the field.

By the end of the first half, Pettway had 16 carries already for 59 yards, good for almost 60 percent of Auburn's total offense.

Ray-Ray McCloud: Deon Cain and Hunter Renfrow draw more attention at wide receiver, but McCloud was so solid Saturday as a pass-catcher. I think Clemson's defensive line is so, so great. He didn't want to put the onus on Auburn's offensive line, which has allowed 22 tackles for loss and 14 sacks in two games, and said their performance was not "frustrating" to him. They probably would have understood if he tried to minimize the number of hits he took from the Auburn defense, which were numerous. It saved the day on Saturday. "We're going to regroup and we're going to be a lot better".
