Those two words sum up Tajh Boyd's attitude as the Tigers head to Atlanta to face LSU in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on New Year's Eve.
"For us, it's about finishing games now," said Boyd. "I think we're becoming a consistent program with two straight 10-win seasons. But now it's time for us to take that next step.
"We've broken down a lot of barriers, but now it's time for us to evolve a little more."
Boyd said beating LSU would be a boost for the Clemson program, both short term and long term.
"This can serve as a big momentum boost going into next season, and it can help change the way people perceive us to be," Boyd said. "I just excited about the opportunity. There's one spotlight on New Year's Eve, and it's us. We need to take advantage of that."
Current odds list the Tigers as a four and a half-point underdog to LSU.
"I know nobody thinks we'll win this game, nobody outside of Clemson anyway," Boyd said. "We haven't won a bowl game since...Kentucky? (The 2009 Music City Bowl). That's something this team wants to do to finish our season.
"The bowl season is less about what bowl you're playing in than it is the type of opponent you're playing against. I think we've prepared the best we can to win this game.
"It's going to be a rocking environment."
