"I first want to thank our crowd for creating a great atmosphere today," said Head Coach Dabo Swinney. "I saw some good things out there on both sides of the ball. Wayne Gallman had a very good day. He ran well and showed he can catch the ball and make some plays out of the backfield. He can break tackles.

"Cole Stoudt had the best day of the quarterbacks. He found his receivers and made the right calls."
