CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says center Ryan Norton received threatening messages on social media after his bad snap in a loss to No. 1 Florida State last weekend.

Swinney said Tuesday that there's no place for people to send threats to college students for making mistakes in a game. The coach said anyone who would do that are not "real fans."

Norton snapped the ball high over the head of quarterback Deshaun Watson with the Tigers a half-yard away from the end zone in the second half of a 23-17 overtime loss to the Seminoles.

Watson fell on the ball at the Florida State 24 and kicker Amon Lakip missed a 40-yard field goal attempt.
