Auburn Vs. Clemson: Dabo Swinney Press Conference

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney spoke to the media Tuesday afternoon and previewed his team's season opening game against Auburn.

"They're different offensively from a philosophy standpoint this year," Swinney said. "We've had to prepare for what we think they're going to do, but also prepare for what they've done in the past. That makes it a bit of a challenge to prepare for two different systems."

Swinney also spoke highly of Auburn's quarterback, Kiehl Frazier, and the team's skill position players.

"Their quarterback, No. 10, has played in big games already," Swinney said. "He has played against Alabama and LSU. He was highly recruited. They have some very good skill at the receiver position. I think their tight end is outstanding. [Philip Lutzenkirchen] is a guy they are going to use a lot of different ways. He's very athletic and can create mismatches. Their running back, he's a homerun hitter. He has the speed to take it the distance and has also been a good return man for them."

Clemson faces Auburn Saturday in a highly anticipated matchup at the Georgia Dome.
