Clemson 54, FAU 6: A solid opening win
There were many positives -- and a few negatives -- in Clemson's decisive victory against an overmatched Florida Atlantic team. One big negative was the excessive turnovers; another was a knee injury to linebacker Anthony Waters. A huge positive: the defense. Another plus: a great punt return for a score by speedy freshman Jacoby Ford.
