Clemson coach Dabo Swinney got a special treat before Monday's practice.

Hall of Famer Dan Marino stopped by Nova Southeastern University to visit with the Tigers, who held their next-to-last workout before facing Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl on New Year's Eve.

"He's awesome," Swinney said. "He's from my era. I grew up in the '80s and '90s watching him play. He’s one of the best to ever lace 'em up. Really neat to spend a little time with him."
