WATCH: Swinney says "It's good to be state champs again" in trophy presentation

by - Assoc. Editor -

Dabo Swinney and seniors from the Clemson football team were on hand for halftime of the Clemson-Auburn basketball game on Sunday afternoon.

Swinney said during the Palmetto trophy ceremony, "It's good to be state champs again." He then went on to honor the seniors and their accomplishments, then brought star linebacker Stephone Anthony out.

"Four years ago he said, 'Clemson is coming.' So here we are. These seniors are going for their 42nd win in the bowl game, and this is No. 42 right here. Let's get behind this team one more time, let's go to Orlando and let's kick Oklahoma's butt!!"
