COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has already started breaking down every aspect of his program since the seventh-ranked Tigers surprise loss to Syracuse this past Friday night.

"It's been a long weekend," Swinney said Monday.

Clemson (6-1, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) is off this week before hosting Georgia Tech on Oct. 28. During the break, Swinney hopes to uncover why the defending national champions, who were more than a three-touchdown favorite, instead were outplayed across the board in a 27-24 loss.
