CLEMSON, S.C. — It would take many more stunning upsets for No. 15 Clemson and coach Dabo Swinney to look past struggling Georgia Tech.

Swinney says the Tigers (4-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) will be focused and ready for the Yellow Jackets (2-3, 1-2) on Saturday. Swinney's not buying into the notion this should be a Clemson runaway since Georgia Tech lost to Middle Tennessee at home last week, 49-28.

Georgia Tech has been a thorn in Swinney's side from almost the moment he got the job midway through the 2008 season.

The Yellow Jackets spoiled Swinney's head coaching debut four years ago at Death Valley. They beat Clemson in the ACC title game in 2009, then ended the Tigers' 8-0 start and national title hopes last year with a win in Atlanta.
