Clemson Defensive Back Coty Sensabaugh:
On his response to the popular mindset that this game will be an offensive showcase and track meet:
“Go out there and prove a point. We have a great opportunity to prove a point to everybody in the country. I mean everybody will be watching the big show. Nobody else is playing that night, I don’t think, so it’s just a great opportunity.”

On coming back strong after losing three of four at the end of the regular season:
“Just continuing to work hard and just believing in ourselves and play together. I mean we had a few bumps in the road but we never lost faith or confidence. We just stuck together; just kept fighting and it came out in our favor, in the end.

On whether the team could have given up after that rough stretch:
“We don’t have those words in our dictionary. So I mean maybe for people on the outside (we could have given up), but for us on the inside, we never considered (giving up).”

Clemson Wide Receiver Jaron Brown:
On whether he likes the matchup with the West Virginia defense:
“I like going against any defense, really… they’ve got great, athletic guys and they run to the ball pretty good and run around pretty good so it’s going to be a great matchup.”

On spending a few days and practicing in South Florida:
“It’s been different. I know last year around this time, I had to wear [long] sleeves and cover up for the cold. But it’s been great coming down here.The Orange Bowl Committee has been great to us and we have a nice hotel. I couldn’t ask for more then to be down here with my teammates and get prepared for the West Virginia game.”

On having fun in South Florida this week:
“We went to a couple places but really just been mellow, low-key. I have fun in the hospitality room, just looking out at the beach and that is pretty much enough fun for me but like I said, we came down here to get our work done and win the Orange Bowl.”

Brandon Ford, wide receiver:
On facing West Virginia’s unconventional defense:
“It’s not exactly like Georgia Tech, but our coaches and (graduate assistants) take their time and get the game plan right for us so we’ll be ready….I fell like the coaches have taken time out and they’ve been game planning since the ACC Championship Game was over. I feel like we will be ready for whatever (West Virginia) brings.”
