From CBSSports:

It was 10:45 a.m. on Sunday when Dabo Swinney called and said he had a few minutes to talk.

"I just got through visiting with a recruit," said the Clemson coach. "And now I am going to church."

Such are the priorities of a man who woke up Sunday morning with the surprise team in college football. After beating Auburn, the defending national champions, and ACC favorite Florida State on consecutive weekends (the first time in 23 years Clemson has beaten ranked teams on consecutive weekends), Clemson is 4-0 and ranked No. 13 as the Tigers head for a showdown with No. 11 Virginia Tech (4-0) Saturday in Blacksburg.

"I like where we are, and I like what this team could become," said Swinney, in his third full season as head coach. "But I told our guys that we didn't listen in the summer when a lot of people said we weren't going to be very good. So we're not going to listen now when those same people say that we're world beaters. We just have to keep playing because this team can get better -- a lot better."
