Clemson ready for Auburn opener

Posted: Updated:

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Clemson coach Dabo Swinney may not ever live down his frenetic, shriek of celebration caught on national TV moments after defeating Auburn last season.

He just hopes he gets to embarrass himself again this week.

Clemson and Auburn will open the season Saturday night at the Georgia Dome. It's the third straight season the teams have played -- and likely to be the third consecutive time the winner can count on even bigger things down the road.

Clemson led Auburn 17-0 in 2010 until the home team rallied behind Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton for a 27-24 overtime win as part of its national title run.

Clemson surprised the defending champions last fall 38-24 as part of its 8-0 start on the way to an ACC title.
