AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -- It all started with Clemson. That's the game
last season when Auburn first rallied to win after facing a
Auburn did it three more times en route to the national title
and has already done it once this season. Now, the two Tigers teams
meet in a rematch at Clemson on Saturday.
Auburn quarterback Barrett Trotter calls the 2010 meeting "one

For Clemson, the defeat touched off a three-game losing streak
en route to a 6-7 season. Right tackle Landon Walker said the game
"wasn't really good for our attitudes."
