ATLANTA (AP) -- Dabo Swinney again has Clemson on the verge of 11 wins, a milestone reached by only three teams in school history. 

Reaching 11 wins might convince Swinney to call his No. 14 Tigers great. It's a title he's willing to place on No. 9 LSU, which will face Clemson in Monday night's Chick-fil-A Bowl. 

Clemson (10-2) is coming off a 27-17 loss to in-state rival South Carolina. It finished the 2011 season at 10-4, when a lopsided 70-33 loss to West Virginia in the Orange Bowl kept the Tigers from 11 wins. 

Swinney says LSU (10-2) deserves to be called great because the Tigers won a recent national championship (2007) and played for the title last year.  

Speaking of his team, Swinney says "We're not great, not yet."
