Sammy Watkins burns Auburn 'D'
By Chris Low
CLEMSON, S.C. -- The sun has reared its head at Memorial Stadium, and so has this Clemson offense.
Clemson is torching Auburn's defense right now and has converted six straight third-downs -- all on passes. The last one was a 65-yard touchdown pass from Tajh Boyd to true freshman Sammy Watkins, who showed some impressive speed after two Auburn defenders had chances at him but whiffed.
Suddenly, Clemson leads 28-21 and has all the momentum. The crowd is back into it, and Auburn is the team on its heels right now.
