How good was No. 11 Clemson's 20-17 victory over Louisville in both teams' ACC opener Thursday night? Good enough to make Clemson coach Dabo Swinney do the "Whip" and the "Nae Nae" in the locker after the game.

The Tigers (3-0, 1-0) held off a late run by the Cardinals (0-3, 0-1) which included a 100-yard kickoff return by freshman Traveon Samuel that cut Clemson's lead to 20-17 with 9:12 remaining in the game.

However, the Tigers defense came up big in the fourth quarter to cement their third straight win of the season and keep their College Football Playoff hopes alive.
