Clemson coach Dabo Swinney talked to the media for his weekly press conference on Tuesday and was asked did he really mean to throw at gigantic pizza party in Death Valley if Clemson makes the college football playoffs?

"I meant what I said," Swinney said. "I forget the power of media or the power of being a highly ranked team. If we had three wins, no one would show up and it wouldn't even make the local news. Where we are right now means everything is magnified to the nth degree. It's just what popped into my head. Y'all kept asking me about the poll. There is no celebration of a midseason poll. I was just saying let's celebrate on December 6. It was just a comment. Hey, I'm fired up for it. There is only one issue - we have to win the rest of the way and we have to win on the 5th. We've got work to do. Hey, I'll be there and we'll have it ready to go, so show up. Show up."
