Swinney: Players Say They Didn't Utter Racial Slurs

CLEMSON, SC -

CLEMSON, SC - (WLTX) -- Just after a 56-7 victory over the USC Gamecocks and reports of racial slurs said throughout the game, Clemson head football Coach Dabo Swinney says the accusations are untrue.

In a regular Sunday teleconference, Swinney addressed the accusation that incendiary comments were directed at USC players.

"I was made aware of that," Swinney said. "Obviously everybody is talking about that. That's a shame. Absolutely I asked my guys about that. To a man absolutely false and I believe my guys. I know the character of my team. That's all there is to say about it."

Gamecocks linebacker Bryson Allen-Williams said the Clemson players "disrespected" them by uttering racial slurs.

“You don’t do that against teams,” Allen-Williams said. “But they beat us and they were the better team today.”
