WATCH: Dabo Swinney post-game press conference for BC


by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney held his post-game press conference after his team's 59-7 rout of Boston College on Saturday night.

Opening statement:

“I’m really proud of our team. I thought the guys had a great mindset tonight. I’m really proud of our tone. The offense set the tone tonight. We had a fast and efficient offense. It was awesome, especially when your offensive line coach is coaching in his 500th game. That’s the first game we’ve had no turnovers since the National Championship last year. Hopefully, that’s a sign of good things to come.”

On Clemson’s offensive performance:

“Travis Etienne continues to set the tone for us offensively. I’m really proud of everybody on offense. I couldn’t be happier for Diondre Overton. He’s a really good player, and it was awesome to see his hard work pay off tonight. He tied a school record with three receiving touchdowns.”

On the Tigers’ defense and special teams:

“I thought we were really solid on special teams. On defense, we accepted the challenge and held Boston College to 97 yards rushing. The best part was Chad Smith forcing that fumble and Logan Rudolph recovering it and rumbling to the end zone with it. I’m really proud of our defense. We had great preparation all week long.”

On offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell:

“Coaching in 500 games is indicative of who he is: his youthfulness, longevity and the reputation he has in this business. We had a lot of fun in the locker room celebrating him after the game.”
