-The defending national college football champs could play more than one QB when the teams meet next month. Following yesterday’s practice, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said junior Kelly Bryant would start at quarterback if the season began today, but others will get a chance to play early in the season.
Bryant is 13 for 22 for 75 yards with 178 yards rushing on 35 carries in 12 career games. He threw an interception on a tipped pass during Clemson’s first scrimmage of fall camp Saturday while true freshman Hunter Johnson threw a touchdown, while redshirt-freshman Zerrick Cooper is also in the mix. Auburn plays at Clemson at 6 p.m. (ESPN) on Sept. 9. and the defending College Football Playoff champions are 7-point favorites. Auburn has won 34 of the 50 all-time meetings in the series.
