ATLANTA, Sept. 1 (UPI) -- DeAndre Hopkins hauled down 13 passes -- a school record -- and scored the decisive touchdown Saturday in No. 14 Clemson's 26-19 win over No. 25 Auburn.

Hopkins amassed 119 receiving yards while filling in for the suspended Sammy Watkins, who missed the first of two games due a drug-related arrest.

Andre Ellington rushed for 231 yards, while Tajh Boyd racked up 208 aerial yards and 58 more on the ground for Clemson (1-0).

Auburn (0-1) got an 11-of-27 passing performance from Kiehl Frazier, who was making his first start for the Tigers in a game played at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
