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).
