OUR PICK: Clemson has one of the most explosive offenses in the nation, led by Heisman Trophy candidate Deshaun Watson at quarterback. Watson is surrounded by outstanding talent at the skill positions, specifically running back Wayne Gallman, tight end Jordan Leggett, and receivers Hunter Renfrow, Artavis Scott and Mike Williams. Auburn has a solid offensive line but quarterback is once again a question mark and the Tigers will struggle to keep pace with Clemson throughout this one tonight.
