Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney has been adamant in stating that his team will win games when it stops losing the turnover battle. The veteran head coach’s prophecy came true on Saturday as the Tigers forced three turnovers in a 31-14 victory at Syracuse. Clemson coughed it up just once while scoring twenty-one points off of the Orange’s miscues.
LB Jeremiah Trotter, Jr., recorded his first interception of the season on Saturday, which set up Phil Mafah’s game-clinching touchdown run on the very next play. And it’s that kind of sequence that Trotter says is the biggest difference between winning and losing.
“It was like a lot of complimentary football,” he explained. “That really just showed what Clemson is about right there.”
The Tigers will try to build on Saturday’s win this weekend as they host Wake Forest for Homecoming. Kickoff is set for 3:30pm on the ACC Network.
