WATCH: Postgame interview with Dabo Swinney


by - Assoc. Editor -

ACC Digital Network's Wes Bryant caught up with Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney and got his reaction to his team's 62-17 blowout win over Virginia.

On what can be said about the team that has not been said already:

“I don’t know what else can be said, but I can just tell you this is an incredibly special group of young people. This has been so much fun to do something that’s never been done. It’s hard to do, and you know obviously nobody has won five conference titles - I played in the first-ever championship game in ’92 - and nobody has won five in a row until now. This team got it done, but those other four teams gave us the opportunity to have this chance tonight, so just proud of these guys and, hey, hats off to Virginia. What a great – I’ll tell you what, that quarterback, he is a great competitor and Bronco (Mendenhall) has done an amazing job. We’re just proud of our team. It was an awesome night. You know, dominated the turnover margin, we took care of it, we created three of them, and this was a great way to finish our season and kick off the postseason.”

On the mentality of the team:

“We’re 13-0 and these guys continue to get ready week in and week out. We just want to have an opportunity to compete for the whole thing. I think we’ve done enough to get somewhere in that top four, wherever they put us we just want a chance to play and see if we can get to the top of the mountain.”
