For the second straight, a major ACC power is opening with a major SEC power.
Last season, the Clemson Tigers played host to the Georgia Bulldogs and earned a 38-35 victory in what turned out to be an excellent game.
This year, the two are getting together again once again, this time between the hedges.
The Tigers have been led by a high-powered offense over the last few years, largely in thanks to one of the bright, young minds in college football, offensive coordinator Chad Morris.
Morris’ squad has to replace quarterback Tajh Boyd, who was cut by the New York Jets today and wide receiver Sammy Watkins, the fourth-overall pick by the Buffalo Bills in the 2014 draft.
The Tigers got off to a great start, taking a 7-0 lead on a great first drive by quarterback Cole Stoudt. After the score, Morris went for a drink of water, but had a little bit of trouble.
You can see Morris’ struggles below.
