Dabo Swinney said during Sunday's media teleconference that he will not name a starter yet for Saturday's game against Georgia State.

"Not gonna name a starter today," Swinney said. "Probably not gonna name one tomorrow, probably not gonna name one Tuesday. We'll go back to work. Obviously Cole Stoudt played really poor. There is no way to sugar coat that. He had a bad game. He has played well. Wake Forest game he was the player of the game for us offensively. So he has proven that he can win. But that was a tough day. He can play better. We are going to challenge him and see how he responds. The biggest thing is we got to figure out who is going to take care of the ball for us. That's what we have to do. If we take care of the ball we have a chance. But if we don't then it is just not fair to our defense. We'll get back to work tomorrow. We'll decide on who starts and go from there. I would imagine both will play."

Senior quarterback Cole Stoudt was 3 for 11 for 19 yards and three interceptions against Georgia Tech.

Swinney went on to say that he has never seen so many quarterback injuries with the Clemson football team.

"Tajh Boyd never missed a game in three years," Swinney said. "This is new territory for us. But that's college football for you."
