Clemson at Auburn
The play of quarterbacks Kyle Parker and Cam Newton will be key when Clemson and Auburn meet in Week 3.
Clemson offense vs. Auburn defense
• Clemson will use multiple formations in an effort to get its ground attack going. RBs Andre Ellington and Jamie Harper lack the big-play ability C.J. Spiller provided last season, but together they make a capable replacement. Ellington is undersized but displays good quickness and lateral agility, while Harper has a nice combination of size (6 feet, 235 pounds) and straight-line speed. The offensive line is experienced and plays with continuity; it must be on the same page this week against a disruptive Auburn defensive line. DT Nick Fairley is coming off an all-world performance last week and displays good strength and anchor on the interior, while DE Antoine Carter is stout and does a nice job of holding the edge.
