was "awesome" and "ready for the moment."

* Dabo said that Clemson's preparation doesn't change because of the opponent..."we expect to play to a standard."

* Dabo said that defensive line was "incredibly physical and disruptive all night."

* Dabo on the WR play: "We certainly weren't as sharp as we needed to be at wideout, but that's a position I'm not very concerned about."

* Dabo says he was disappointed in the play of WR Martavis Bryant but points to TE Brandon Ford not playing well in opener last season.

* Dabo on fake injuries.."I don't know. I am not worried about all that stuff. I saw that clip. But I don't try to get into second-guessing."

* Dabo on fake injuries.."You are getting into ethical behavior there. If you really aren't injured and have guys do down that gets into ethics of game."
