Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney spoke to the media following his team's 41-7 whipping of No. 16 North Carolina State.

“That’s two games in a row that we’ve put together a complete effort," Swinney said. "That’s what we’re capable of doing. Our guys were on edge all week because we’ve had a lot of close games with NC State. I was actually worried about them peaking too early, but they were ready to play. I’m really proud of them."

On the complete performance by the Tigers:

“Our guys were locked in and committed to preparation all week long. That was a dominant performance today. NC State’s a good football team. We complemented each other in all phases of the game and put together a total team effort. We committed no turnovers on offense and forced three turnovers on defense. We had great energy from start to finish. We also played 85 guys and picked up the second-largest margin of victory against a ranked opponent for us.”


On the impact of the fans on Homecoming:

“I really appreciate our fans. They gave us an awesome environment at Death Valley today. The noise level seemed to create problems for NC State. It was a great atmosphere and a lot of fun out there today.”


On the solid offensive showing:

“Offensively, we threw the ball for 380 yards, and we were 8-15 on third down. Honestly, a lot of our passes were initially run calls. We just took advantage of what was there. Trevor Lawrence was on the money all day. The receivers did a great job, too.”
