DABO SWINNEY: (11:37)
OVERALL THOUGHTS: Great win today. We are so proud of the team. We ran the same zone plays, but we executed today. These games are about blocking and tackling, and it's about executing these elements. We executed today on both sides of the ball, and I told the guys that if they execute, then they can win games. If we play like we practice, then we can overwhelm the other team, and that's what we did today. Overall, a great job by the entire team on this win today.
ON THE DEFENSE: The defense was relentless all day and dominated. They played smart and made tackles. When you follow your assignments and play with an aggressive attitude, then plays are made. I'm proud of the effort by the defense from the beginning of the game to the end.
ON THE OFFENSE: Overall, the offense played smart, without making many mistakes. The game ball goes to C.J. Spiller today. He gave 100 percent on every play, and he is the first ACC player to get over 6,000 all-purpose yards. We are very proud of C.J. and his efforts today. The quarterbacks were also a big factor in today's win. Kyle Parker took his time and made very smart plays, along with Willy Korn. They got it done, and got it done right.
C.J. SPILLER: (5:34)
"This is the Clemson team that should have been playing all year. I credit the offensive line for their key blocks in allowing me to get that 66-yard touchdown."
BRANDON MAYE: (2:20)
"Our mindset coming into the game was `Be Great'! Coach Steele did a good job of preparing us for this game."
