Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney has had an easy time motivating his team throughout the year. After the Tigers struggled to take down North Carolina, they fell from the top spot in the rankings.
Following that close win, though, Clemson smashed each of its remaining opponents en route to the College Football Playoff. Now the Tigers enter the Fiesta Bowl as the favorite over Ohio State.
During the College Football Playoff press conference, Swinney was asked if the “ROY” (rest of y’all) bus is fueled up for the game.
Here’s what he had to say, via Saturday Down South:
“You got to earn it every single year. But, yeah, the ROY Bus is fueled up, for sure. It’s been easy this year. I really haven’t had to do a whole lot. Pretty well stated on that, I think, on the record on all that stuff.
I think as a coach, you take free fuel any time you can get it. We got a good football team. We’ve earned our opportunity to get here. I’m proud of them.”
Swinney and the Tigers enter the College Football Playoff semifinal on a tremendous winning streak. They haven’t faced a team like Ohio State since last year’s title game – though we all know how that went.
Can Ohio State finally give the Tigers a loss?
