Swinney says Clemson's loss to Duke 'almost indescribable'

DURHAM, N.C. -- Monday was judgment night for Clemson, and coach Dabo Swinney expects the jury will deliver a scathing verdict.

Clemson arrived in Durham ranked ninth in the Associated Press preseason poll and was an overwhelming favorite to beat a Duke team that hadn't toppled a top-10 program since 1989.

The Tigers left Durham battered, bludgeoned and utterly baffled after a 28-7 loss that saw Clemson stumble through four drives inside the red zone that ended without points.

"That's the weirdest game I've ever been a part of," Swinney said.
