Watch Clemson's Dabo Swinney gets a Halloween scare from his team

While Clemson waited to see where they would fall in the first set of College Football Playoff rankings, they decided to have a little Halloween fun after a team meeting. 

Unfortunately for head coach Dabo Swinney, the fun came at his expense. 

Luckily, the coach and the team were able to get a good laugh out of the prank. 

Despite a loss to Syracuse, the reigning national champions were announced at No. 4 in the first rankings, behind Georgia, Alabama and Notre Dame. No. 6 Clemson takes on N.C. State, the final unefeated team in the ACC, this weekend for control of the conference.
