Auburn fans are a bit upset with ESPN this afternoon.
Auburn and Clemson don’t play every year, but they still have one of the more interesting non-conference rivalries going in college football. Someone at ESPN might want to check on the stats of said rivalry, however.
Saturday morning, ESPN College GameDay aired a graphic that showed that Clemson leads the series 34-14-2.
The problem? Auburn, despite losing the last three games to the Tigers, actually leads the series 34-14-2.
Auburn fans are pissed, to say the least.

@CollegeGameDay Auburn leads the all-time series over Clemson. Your graphic was wrong. Who does your "research," Pollack?

No, ESPN likely won’t issue a retraction. But AU can make a bigger statement with a road win over the defending champions tonight.
