Clemson coach Dabo Swinney held his weekly news conference this morning at Death Valley. The Tigers will face Georgia Tech Thursday night in Atlanta. As is usually the case, Swinney had PLENTY to say. You can listen to all of his comments below.
AUDIO: Dabo Swinney (36:54)
And a few other tid bits heading into Thursday night…
Could be a tight one:
This series has been the ACC’s most competitive over the past 13 years. Ten of the past 13 games have been decided by five points or less. There was a six-game streak from 1996-2001 in which every game was decided by three points.
Clemson has not won in Atlanta since 2003. IN fact, the Tigers haven’t scored a touchdown in at Bobby Dodd Stadium since the team’s 39-3 win in ’03. Georgia Tech has won four of the past five games in the series.
Willy Korn/Brandon Clear:
You haven’t seen the last of quarterback Willy Korn. Despite his struggles against Middle Tennessee Swinney still plans to get Korn on the field at some point against Georgia Tech. Swinney said he is still confident that Korn can get the job done.
Also, Brandon Clear will start at receiver ahead of Xavier Dye this week.
