Dabo Swinney On Big Matchup With Florida State: “Ain’t Nobody Gonna Skin Us And Eat Us Alive”
Dabo Swinney has a big task on his hands this week as he prepares his team to take on Jameis Winston and the Florida State Seminoles in a battle between undefeated teams. Despite it being a home game for the Tigers, FSU is a slight favorite, and today Swinney was asked what he thought about it and if the guys were prepared — he had a perfect response:
Swinney: “We might lose the ball game, but it won’t be because we aren’t prepared. ..Ain’t nobody going to skin us and eat us alive.”

Dabo says he doesn’t get into the underdog role, and doesn’t think he will use as motivation. “It comes down to execution. This is a tossup”

He’s right about this one being a toss-up — it’s two great teams facing off under the lights, and will likely come down to a big play here or there. The game kicks off at 8:00 Saturday night on ABC.
