Yeah, Syracuse may be pushed around a lot tonight, but I don't expect a blowout like some people. "It's not much fun watching from the sidelines". But since the two teams became ACC Atlantic division rivals, Clemson has won four in a row.
"It speaks to the mindset of our team, their readiness", Swinney said. "They're a much improved football team from past year".
But the below average running game isn't Syracuse's biggest offensive problem. We've got an interesting game on our hands during Friday the 13th. Syracuse fans can find the Orange game on the Syracuse IMG Sports Network. Quarterback Eric Dungey has accumulated more than 2,000 yards of offense, including 1,802 passing yards and 9 touchdowns versus 4 interceptions.
"He's a playmaker, man", Clemson linebacker Kendall Joseph said of Dungey.
The game will mark the ninth time since the inception of the Associated Press poll in 1936 that the Orange have played the defending national champion, and they've only won twice - Penn State in 1987 and MI in 1998.
The Orange are coming off their first ACC win of the season over the cross-divisional rival Pittsburgh Panthers.
That being said, Syracuse could be a bowl-caliber team under second-year head coach Dino Babers. "But let's all get in our chairs and watch and see what will happen". Tune in to ESPN on Friday night at 7:00 p.m. ET to see Clemson take on Syracuse at the Carrier Dome.

The technology company reported $0.30 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, topping the consensus estimate of $0.26 by $0.04. This cash is what a company uses to meet its financial obligations, such as making payments on debt or to pay out dividends.
If Bryant is unable to play, the Tigers will be forced to turn to a pair of freshman behind center - Hunter Johnson and Zerrick Cooper.
Against these Tigers, it might not matter.
"We're looking forward to the open date afterward, but our focus is really on trying to empty our tank this week and sprint into this open date and play our best game Friday night". "These guys are faster than us". Just keep plowing ahead.
How can I listen to Clemson-Syracuse on the radio? Philips has 16 third-down catches, 11 going for first downs. That improvement, combined with a potent offense that ranks 32nd in the nation in total yards (466.8 per game), makes Syracuse a unsafe opponent. Clemson is averaging 35 points per game.
COME ONE, COME SOMEBODY: Since the heady days of Donovan McNabb and Dwight Freeney two decades ago, Syracuse has struggled at the gate at home.
Regardless of who plays quarterback, Syracuse will have to deal with the most hard ACC defense. That's the second-best turnout of this century at the Orange's indoor home, eclipsed only by the 49,033 that turned out for Virginia Tech in 2000.
Clemson still seems to be somewhat under the radar this year.
