Clemson coach Dabo Swinney expects the seventh-ranked Tigers to remain focused on FCS opponent Citadel this week even with the season finale against rival South Carolina looming down the road.

 Swinney said Tuesday his players understand that losing their focus can lead to the loss of a game, no matter the opponent. The Tigers (9-1) are 27-0 all-time against Football Championship Subdivision program. That record includes a 52-13 victory over South Carolina State back in September. 

After Citadel (5-6) comes the annual contest with the Gamecocks on Nov. 30. South Carolina has won four straight in the series.

Tigers quarterback Tajh Boyd thinks his teammates have done well at not looking ahead to broader goals.
