AP Sports Writer

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson coach Dabo Swinney is focused on getting his 13th-ranked Tigers ready for the postseason after another disappointing end to the regular season - something he's knows all too well with his team's five-game losing streak to No. South Carolina in season finales.

Swinney has had some solid results picking up his team in recent years.

In 2011, the Tigers followed a loss to the Gamecocks with a victory over Virginia Tech to win the school's first Atlantic Coast Conference championship in 20 years. A season ago, Clemson rebounded from a South Carolina loss with a memorable, 25-24 comeback to topple LSU in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl.

Swinney expects his players' pride t once again to rise to the forefront this postseason following Saturday night's 31-17 defeat in the rivalry game.
