Miami, Florida (WLTX) -- The Clemson Tigers take on Ohio State Friday in the Orange Bowl. Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney and Ohio State's Urban Meyer attended a news conference Thursday morning answering questions about the BCS bowl game and posing for pictures with the Orange Bowl trophy.
Swinney was asked about their last trip to Miami when the Tigers suffered a big 70-33 loss to West Virginia. Swinney says the Tigers spent months feeling bad about the loss. He told reporters, "we're 21-4 since that game, and those four loses have been to top 10 teams. We've had our share of top 10 wins along the way as well, so this team has more than responded."
Kickoff is at 8:30 pm Friday.
