How impressed is head coach Dabo Swinney with Clemson’s No. 6 national ranking? Not very. Swinney admitted during his Sunday afternoon teleconference that he doesn’t even know who was ranked sixth in last week’s poll.

Rahshaun Smith and recruits react to Clemson's win over Notre Dame

Clemson fans are excited about the Tigers' thrilling 24-22 win over Notre Dame in a wet and wild Death Valley Saturday night, but they aren't the only ones. Several of Clemson's top commits and prospects took notice as well.

Rising to the occasion

Clemson’s defense was gashed, and it bent as Notre Dame rallied from a 21-3 deficit to pull within 24-22 with seven seconds remaining, but in the end it didn’t break.

Bring Your Own Guts
Bring your own guts. That was the mantra head coach Dabo Swinney and his 11th-ranked Tigers preached all week, and those guts showed up in a big way as Clemson held off a late Notre Dame rally and stopped a 2-point conversion with seven seconds remaining in earning a 24-22 victory Saturday night in Death Valley.

The Perfect Storm: Tigers down Irish 24-22
A never-say-die defense, an orange-clad crowd that rallied behind the defense time and time again in a driving rainstorm and a gutsy stop on a two-point conversion with seven seconds to play all helped lead No. 11 Clemson to a 24-22 victory over No. 6 Notre Dame in front of 82,415 soaked fans in Death Vallley.
