The Auburn-Clemson game was one of the most anticipated of what has been billed as, perhaps, the greatest opening weekend in recent college football history and Auburn found a way to make it a little more special for the fans in at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
This is how the game ball arrived to the field.
That’s called sticking the landing.
Clemson entered the game ranked No. 2 and coming off a season in which it played for the national title. With that kind of opponent in the house, it figured to be an electric environment at Auburn and the pregame ceremonies only added to that.
