Dabo Confident Heading Into ACC Championship

Clemson head football coach Dabo Swinney hopes the winning environment in the Upstate will carry the Tigers to another ACC title.

Miami has the turnover chain,

Clemson has the "All In" chips that go into a bucket.

Whatever works and for both teams, 2017 has been almost perfect as the Canes and Tigers come in with 11-1 records.

For the defending national champions, it's all about building on what has previously been accomplished.

"I mean, we've won 81 games in seven years," said head coach Dabo Swinney.

"These guys think they're supposed to win. That's where it starts. You have to win in the mind before you win anywhere and our guys, they just believe and think they are supposed to win. When we don't win, it's like 'What? We lost? Okay, why did we lose? Let's go back to work'. They just don't lose focus and again, I think that's a credit to the culture that we have that's been established over the last eight years."

Kickoff in Charlotte is set for shortly after 8:00 p.m.
