COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says his team's experience the past two years could lead to big things this fall.

The Tigers are coming off their best back-to-back seasons in three decades. They won the Atlantic Coast Conference championship in 2011 and reached a BCS game for the first time in school history during a 10-4 season.

Clemson followed that up by going 11-2 in 2012, notching their most wins in a season since going 12-0 during the national championship year of 1981.

Swinney says there are plenty of key players back who were critical to Clemson's 21 victories the past two seasons.

Swinney says it's up to veteran players like quarterback Tajh Boyd, receiver Sammy Watkins and others to keep the progress going this summer.
