From the Augusta Chronicle:

And while Clemson’s traditionally tough defense has been a little suspect of late, Auburn also showed everyone last year that it doesn’t always take a great defense to win championships.

Clemson has to be careful on Saturday at Georgia Tech (and Oklahoma’s choke against a 29-point underdog should be a valuable lesson).

It’s a game not to be taken lightly.

Dutifully take care of underwhelming Wake Forest and N.C. State and it could all come down to Nov. 26 in Columbia against the team many expected would be the class of South Carolina football this season.
