A Clash of Tigers! (Auburn vs. Clemson, Open Thread.)

Clemson Thread

It will be a hostile environment.
Auburn vs. Clemson, Open Thread.

     War Eagle, everybody! This evening marks Auburn’s first road game of the 2017 college football season! Tonight, the Auburn Tigers will take on the defending National Champion Clemson Tigers, in Clemson, South Carolina. This game will kick off at 6:00 PM Central Time, on ESPN.

     A year ago, Auburn trailed Clemson for much of the game, before rallying in the 4th quarter. Time expired as Auburn was hurling last-ditch passes at the Clemson end zone. Auburn lost, 19-13 to the visiting Tigers. Clemson went on to run the table, and win the ACC Championship. The folks from South Carolina went on to the college football playoffs, and met Alabama in Tampa for the national title. Clemson scored the winning touchdown with just a few seconds left on the clock, defeating the hated Alabama Crimson Tide 35-31.

     Weather should be just about perfect for this game. Dry air is in place over the area, and skies should be mostly clear. Kickoff temperature will be in the mid 70s.

     As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I’ll be here this evening with a play by play, and some fired-up commentary. This is what it’s all about, folks! A big non-conference game between Power Five teams. War Eagle, and beat Clemson!
