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.

* Game stories: Read about the contest here, here, here and here.

* Player profiles: Jacoby Ford's spectacular debut is the subject of this story. Quarterback Will Proctor's debut also gets good reviews. Super-recruit C.J. Spiller did OK in limited play. Receiver Chansi Stuckey had a good game. And whatever you do, don't forget about Reggie Merriweather.

* Bowden blows up:
Clemson's coach went absolutely nuts after a blown call by the referees.

* WestZone looks great: The reviews are in, and it's two enthusiastic thumbs up.
