For a while it looked like Clemson might dominate Auburn, but in the end they were hanging on for dear life. The Tigers had to bat down two Hail Mary passes in the end zone to hang on to its 19-13 road win, a situation that caused a quite of bit of anxiety on the sidelines in in the stands for the Clemson contingent. In the end, they held on and as Dabo Swinney pointed out after the game, the win is all that matters. While there is work to be done and mistakes to be corrected, Swinney and the Tigers are thrilled to leave Jordan-Hare 1-0.
Take a listen below to Swinney discussing the importance of finding a way to win in a hostile road environment as well as explaining why he decided not to kick a 34 yard field goal that would have put the Tigers up 9 points with less than a minute to play.
