Boston College postgame with Swinney

CLEMSON - Head coach Dabo Swinney talks about Saturday's 36-14 win over Boston College, the status of Tajh Boyd and more.


Overall thoughts:
"It's great to get our 6th win. We're really proud of this win. BC is a physical team and they don't quit.

"At the half, I encouraged the team to get our running game going, especially Andre, and we were able to.

"Sammy (Watkins) and Cole Stoudt both stepped up and as a team we had no turnovers on offense."

On Tajh Boyd's injury:
"We x-rayed him here and everything looked good but we took him to get him checked again just to be sure, and hopefully it will just be something muscular. Without knowing more I don't want to comment further."

On Maryland next week:
"It's not going to be any easier for us this second half of the season, and it hasn't been easy ever, but this team is resilient and this crowd was great. But we're ready to take this show on the road.

"We're proud of this win tonight but we have got to get ready for the night game in Maryland."

On the play of freshmen Stoudt and Watkins:
"It was not the ideal situation for Stoudt to come into but he did a good job of executing. (Mike) Bellamy gave us a spark late. Watkins is just great. After that catch I just said, ‘Boys, that's recruiting.'

"Stoudt is a very poised young guy, we were impressed with him in the spring and he had a good camp. We're real proud of him."

On preparing for next week:
"We'll bring them in at 6:00AM Monday morning and we'll watch the tape. There is plenty to improve on; we're far from perfect. We have to stay dialed in." Top Stories
