No pizza party for Clemson this year, Swinney says

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Don't count on eating championship pizza with the Clemson Tigers next month.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says due to logistics the team would unlikely arrive back on campus in time following a potential Atlantic Coast Conference championship game to celebrate with fans as they did a year ago. The ACC moved its title game from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Orlando, Florida because of North Carolina's law that restricts the rights of LGBT people.

In 2015, the Tigers and Swinney greeted about 30,000 people at Death Valley on the Sunday following their 45-37 ACC title win over North Carolina.

The fans and Tigers watched Clemson's College Football Playoff selection and ate free pizza , as Swinney had promised earlier in the season.

The third-ranked Tigers (8-0, 5-0 ACC) face Syracuse (4-4, 2-2) on Saturday.
