Saturday September 3rd, 2016

Two sets of Tigers—Clemson and Auburn—meet in a high-profile Week 1 matchup as college football begins anew.

Clemson returns star quarterback Deshaun Watson after a run to the College Football Playoff title game and a 14–1 season. The Tigers come in at No. 2 in the AP’s preseason poll and received 16 first-place votes, trailing only Alabama, who knocked them off in the championship.

Auburn begins the season unranked, turning to quarterback Sean White to lead the offense as head coach Gus Malzahn enters a key season. The SEC's Tigers play host and will face a potent Clemson attack, which will test an untested Auburn secondary. Clemson is the clear favorite.
