Dabo Swinney: 51-14 not barometer
Swinney said Tuesday after watching film of the 51-14 trouncing, he believes if the teams played 10 times, "We'd probably win five, they'd probably win five."
Swinney says he isn't taking away from the Seminoles' dominating performance. Florida State put up a record number of points for opponents at Death Valley. And while Swinney says there were a couple of areas the Seminoles "were a bit ahead" of his Tigers, he believes Florida State just caught Clemson on a bad night.
Clemson and Florida State aren't scheduled to play again until next season.
The Tigers (6-1, 4-1 ACC) play at Maryland (5-2, 1-2) Saturday.
