Telling stats from first half

AUBURN, Ala. -- Clemson held the ball for 19:23 in the first half. It had the ball for 18:08 the entire game against North Texas in the season opener. Time of possession has been a huge factor in this game. Great job by Clemson offensive coordinator Billy Napier.

One more ... Clemson had four third-down conversions in the first half. The Tigers had just four in the first two games combined entering tonight.
