Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney was proud of his team as they played outstanding defense and overcame turnovers to win 14-13.
The defense received praise from Dabo.
“They got off to a bad start, but they never quit or backed down. I gave them the game ball for their play. For them to hold NC State to 275 yards speaks volumes for our defense. They had a great performance today and it was only fitting that they got to finish the game ending NC State’s last chance to score,” said Swinney.
Kyle’s play after being benched was key to the Tiger’s victory.
“Kyle came back in that series strong. He pulled himself together and showed a lot of heart. He made big plays to Harper and Hopkins. I’m real proud of him for persevering during the game,” said Swinney.
