AUBURN, Ala. - Gus Malzahn said his quarterback race was close all August, then showed just how close it was Saturday night.Auburn threw into the end zone on the games two final plays, but Clemson survived for a 19-13 win.Sean White, Jeremy Johnson, John Franklin III, Kerryon Johnson and even H-back Chandler Cox stepped through the revolving quarterback door to set up Daniel Carlson field goals and a late Kerryon Johnson TD run. It wasnt enough despite a comeback second half. Clemsons high-powered offense did just enough aginst a tough-minded Auburn defense in front of a sold out Jordan-Hare Stadium on opening night.No. 2 Clemson came in with all the offensive fanfare, but Carlsons 32-yard field goal with 13:46 remaining cut Clemson lead to 13-6. Auburn then cut it to 19-13 with 3:22 left on a 9-yard Kerryon Johnson touchdown run.Sean Whites final two passes were batted away in the final seconds.A Deshaun Watson pass to Hunter Renfrow, who made a nothing-you-can-do-about-it great catch, made it 19-6 with 9:59 left. Clemson turned Auburn away on a fourth-down pass from the 8, before Johnsons touchdown run minutes later.Auburn tried to catch Clemson off guard the whole game. Receiver Stanton Truitt got three quick carries. Sean White, Jeremy Johnson and John Franklin III all threw a pass in the first quarter. Kerryon Johnson finally hit the half with 10 rushing yards, but, as a team, Auburn had just one.The Tigers picked it up in the second half.Johnson hit his first three passes and led Auburn to its first score, a Carlson 53-yard field goal for a 3-0 lead. It was the sixth time that Carlson had blasted a field goal of at least 50 yards in his career, an Auburn record. Kevin Phillips also had a career-best 68-yard punt in the first half.Auburns defensive line held steady early and it took a fourth-down 1-yard run by Wayne Gallman to finally get Clemson a 7-3 lead with 7:34 left in the first quarter.Auburns defense turned away another scoring opportunity when Derrick Brown recovered a fumble caused by Darrell Williams. But Clemson tacked on a Greg Huegel field goal with 0:07 seconds left in the first half for a 10-3 lead.Clemson scored first in the second half on a 40-yard field goal for a 10-point lead. Auburn was still hanging around, though, despite the fact Clemson has run 49 plays for 255 yards. Auburn had run 26 plays for 38 yards.Auburn found its offense by mixing White, Johnson and Franklin, driving to the Clemson 5 late in the third quarter. But Johnson was stopped on fourth-and-2.UP NEXTAuburn hosts Arkansas State on Saturday. Cheap Balenciaga Shoes For Sale .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable.

Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious. Balenciaga Shoes Sale Online .Y. - New Orleans forward Anthony Davis was chosen Friday to replace the injured Kobe Bryant in the NBA All-Star game that will be played in his home city. Balenciaga Shoes Clearance . Sulaiman, 44, was chosen unanimously Tuesday in a vote by the leadership, the World Boxing Council said. Sulaiman becomes the sixth president of the organization. DAVIE, Fla. -- Being an aggressive cornerback, Xavien Howard interrupted an inquisitors question Tuesday, and it went incomplete.The subject was Howards most eye-catching attribute, and the Miami Dolphins rookie eagerly jumped in midway through the query.Ball skill, Howard answered. Ive been a playmaker. They got me here for a reason. Ive just got to do what I did in college, and do more. Yes sir. Takeaways. Yes sir.Now that hes back at practice, the Dolphins second-round draft pick is showing some swagger. Howard missed the first three weeks of camp recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, which may have spoiled his chances of starting at cornerback in the season opener.He was activated last week from the physically unable to perform list, practiced for the third day in a row Tuesday, and could provide a significant upgrade in a shaky secondary.It feels good to be back out there competing again with my guys, Howard said.The former Baylor star required right knee surgery after hurting his knee on the final day of minicamp in June. That temporarily took him out of the competition for the job opposite veteran newcomer Byron Maxwell.Howard said his goal remains to win a starting job this year, and hes not fretting about the practice time missed.I wouldnt call it a setback, he said. Id just say its a learning process that I went through, and Im just learning from it -- a lot of mental reps, just seeing what the older guys were doing and learning from them.Before the injury, Howard received favorable reviews in offseason drills. New coach Adam Gase especially liked the knack Howard showed for deflections and interceptions..ddddddddddddHe gets his hands on a lot of balls, Gase said. When he does get both hands up to make a play on the ball, he usually catches it.Howard made nine interceptions in his final two years at Baylor, and now the Dolphins are eager to see him in an NFL game. Hell sit out Thursday against Atlanta, but expects to play in next weeks preseason finale, and has no doubt hell play in the season opener Sept. 11 at Seattle.In Howards absence, converted receiver Tony Lippett has been working with the first team at cornerback. Expected to join the mix eventually is veteran newcomer Chris Culliver, who has yet to practice while he recovers from a serious knee injury last Thanksgiving.This week the Dolphins have slowly been working Howard into one-on-one and team drills.I wouldnt say hes far behind mentally, Gase said. Hes dialed in to what were doing. Hes playing one-on-one coverage a lot of the time. Thats his strength. Were going to try to lean on his strength of matching him up with somebody and letting him go.That sounds good to Howard. He wore an NFL uniform for the first time Friday, watching from the sideline when the Dolphins played at Dallas.I just couldnt explain the feeling, he said. It was my first NFL game and I was excited, cheering guys on.Soon he expects to have teammates cheering for him.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Steven Wine on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Steve-Wine.
