Clemson was led by Andre Ellington, who put on what likely will prove to be one of the top performances of the 2012 season when all is set and done. Ellington was mesmerizing throughout the evening, gaining 228 yards on 25 carries,averaging 9.1 yards per carry.
Overall, Clemson was able to gain 320 yards on the ground, churning up turf and time en route to its first victory of the campaign.
Auburn was failed by a passing game that was wildly inconsistent. Quarterback Kiehl Frazier struggled, only completing 11-of-27 for 194 yards to accompany a touchdown and interception.
However, Gene Chizik's squad had a solid ground attack as well led by sophomore Tre Mason who ate up 106 yards on 14 attempts.
