Swinney's challenge to Clemson fans for NC State game

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney held his weekly press conference on Tuesday and urged the Clemson fans to show up and be loud for Saturday's noon game against North Carolina State.

"Our fans are Death Valley [referring to a T-shirt]. There is no Death Valley without our fans, and the standard is kinda been set high, and I know there is a lot of people or some people out there that aren't happy with playing a noon game and we don't have any control of that," Swinney said. "Sometimes I think people don't understand that. I love night games too, but we don't have any control of that. That is what I tell my players. We got to play great whenever we play if we play at noon, three, eight, nine, one in the morning, we got to play great. That's what we are supposed to do. I would say the same things to our fans because they make such a huge difference. A huge difference. We started the Louisville game out with two penalties in a row right out of the gate."

Swinney knows that a loud crowd against North Carolina State could be the difference in two teams playing with a lot at stake in the ACC Atlantic division.

"So my message to the fans is this week is that same fervor and intensity and will to win and spirit we had at 12 at midnight against Louisville, we need it at 12 noon against NC State," Swinney said. "This is a huge game. It's a battle of first place in our division. It gives us an opportunity to get to 7-0 and stay on course to accomplish our goal and win this division. That's what we got to do so we can have the opportunity to go play for the ACC championship. We don't get many home games. I want to challenge our fans to show up and let's be ready and let's get up and eat a biscuit and be ready to roll."
