No. 13 Auburn is off to a 1-0 start after pounding over matched Georgia Southern 41-7 in their regular season opener on Saturday although they narrowly failed to cover the spread by a half-point as a huge 34.5-point home favorite.Despite not having their No.1 wide receiver and top running back, in Kyle Davis and Kamryn Pettway, Auburn managed to overcome Georgia Southern on Saturday night as Baylor transfer quarterback Jarrett Stidham made his debut by completing 14 of 24 passes for 185 yards with two passing touchdowns, one rushing score and one interception, to lead Auburn to a commanding 41-7 victory over the Eagles.“I was thrilled to be back out there,” Stidham said. “I’ve got to get a lot better personally and as an offense collectively.”Third-string tailback Kam Martin put on a show with 136 rushing yards and one 36-yard touchdown run on 14 carries while junior running back Kerryon Johnson rushed for an identical 136 yards and one score.The Tigers’ defense held Georgia Southern to a minuscule 78 yards of total yards.“Our defense was unbelievable,” Tigers head coach Gus Malzahn said. “They were outstanding.

Clemson is 1-0 after beating Kent State 56-3 on Saturday to cash in as a 38-point home favorite in their first game since losing championship-winning star quarterback Deshaun Watson. Not only did the Tigers lose Watson, but they also saw their top wide receiver Mike Williams and top running back Wayne Gallman all make off for the NFL draft.College Football Odds: Clemson is 1-0 after beating Kent State 56-3 on Saturday to cash in as a 38-point home favorite. Still, new starting quarterback Kelly Bryant had a solid debut by completing 16 of 22 passes for 236 yards with one touchdown and one interception while rushing for 77 yards and another score to lead the Tigers to an emphatic 56-3 win over Kent State on Saturday.The Tigers held the Golden Flashes to just 120 yards, but it didn’t help that Kent State did attempted a stunningly low five passes in the loss.“That’s what I was hoping to see,” Coach Dabo Swinney said about his new starter. “That’s what I have seen in practice for a while.”Bryant played one series in the second half before departing after leading the Tigers on an 89-yard touchdown drive that put the Tigers up 35-3.“I wasn’t surprised. I knew the type of player I was,” said Bryant, who was so loose he made sure he put an official’s hat back on his head after accidentally knocking it off.

Expert Analysis and College Football Odds Prediction

I like what I saw out of Clemson’s Kelly Bryant on Saturday, but I also like what I saw out of Auburn signal-caller Jarrett Stidham and I believe this contest could come down to the team that plays better defense.While Clemson has gone  4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games, Auburn has posted a near-perfect 5-1 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games while also going 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and a robust 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall.I think this Week 2 matchup looks like a field goal finish waiting to happen as Clemson narrowly survives, but Auburn covers. Over/Under Total bettors should know that the Under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between Clemson and Auburn.
