Auburn coach Gene Chizik has watched his team reel of 17 straight wins, some of which have been by virtue of big comebacks, amazing plays or both. One of those 17 victories came against Clemson last year at Jordan-Hare stadium. Clemson jumped out to a 17-0 lead before Auburn rallied to win in overtime. Today on the SEC teleconference Chizik said that was one of the most physical games his team played last year. He expects an equally tough game this weekend in Death Valley.
Clemson and Auburn play at noon Saturday on ABC. Clemson is a 3 ½ point favorite.
