They got him good.
Clemson football got into the Halloween spirit yesterday with an epic pranking of head coach Dabo Swinney.
In the video below, you can see what looks like a football staffer dressing up in some kind of monster costume. The cameras are set up in the meeting room for the impending scare.
Swinney is later seen addressing the team when the lights suddenly go out. When they come back on, there's a surprise waiting for him.
Dabo handled the prank well, as you might expect he would. He took it in stride.
Yesterday was certainly a happy Halloween overall for Clemson. The Tigers came in fourth in the initial College Football Playoff rankings, which can be seen in full here.
