On today's performance…
Swinney: We were coming off an emotional game last week. They did a great job setting the tone early with some great drives. We scored the most points in a half of any Clemson team since 1981.
Later in the game we got in a situation where we didn't want anyone to get hurt. It was a great opportunity to grow the team. We got to play a lot of guys and give them the chance to get some playing time. I've told them at practices during the week, you may not be the starter or even the second guy, but you have to be ready when it's your turn. You need to practice like you would play. Hopefully we can start off strong next week, and give a lot of guys some playing time again.
I'm proud of our overall performance, but there is still a lot we can improve on. It was a good game to grow on. We can play to the standard we have set.
On the play of Tajh Boyd…
Swinney: He has been continuing to mature as a player. During the spring and summer he was able to look at himself as a player, and has learned to operate within the system. He has come in with the mindset to be a great quarterback this season. We have talked about continuing to do well every week regardless of who and where we play.
On Daniel Rodriguez's first action from scrimmage…
Swinney: It took him seven years and two wars to get his first college reception, but he has no bigger fans than his teammates.
