WATCH: Swinney talks win over Duke, senior class


by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney addressed the media during his postgame press conference after his team's 35-6 win over Duke.

I’m really proud of our team for how they responded in the second half," he said. "Obviously, we did not get off to a great start. We missed a couple third-and-twos and dropped more balls in the game tonight than we have all year. I was really disappointed in how we started, but it’s a four-quarter game. I challenged them at halftime to see how they could respond. To win 35-6 against a good football team...I’m really proud of our guys and how they responded. We had no turnovers and no sacks [allowed], so that is a positive to take away from the game."

Swinney is like a proud papa watching his senior class.

"Our seniors have won 51 games, and I am so proud of them," he smiled. "They are an enjoyable group of young men that I get to be around every day. Every week, they lead our team in a tremendous way. It’s pretty impressive when you look on paper at what this group of seniors has been able to accomplish in their careers."

Swinney thought Clemson had a first-class evening honoring the military.

“I thought Military Appreciation Day was an awesome night," he said. "Clemson does such a fantastic job at honoring our military. It was really cool for our guys to be able to see that."
