You have the feeling when Clemson and Auburn mixed it up at Jordan-Hare Stadium this Tiger fight would be a close game. Well it was and both teams wanted to beat the piss out of each other.
Both teams were laying the wood, two lineman, one for each team, had to be carted off the field. Clemson starting quarterback Kyle Parker took a ton of licks and at times didn't know where he was plus was suffering pain throughout his midsection, yet soldiered on.
The Auburn offense struggled much of the first half yet found their mojo in the second half completing the rally with a 27-24 overtime win.
So far this is the best college football game that has been played this season. Auburn can take this win as a huge confidence boost.
Though this looks like another ACC team couldn't get it done outside the conference Clemson stood toe to toe with Auburn however, moral victories are not marked in the win column.
