ESPN awkwardly cuts to studio during Dabo Swinney interview (Video)
There was a bizarre broadcasting moment at the end of Saturday’s Clemson-Notre Dame game when ESPN cut to its studio during the middle of Dabo Swinney’s postgame interview.
The Tigers stopped the Fighting Irish on a two-point conversion to hang on for the 24-22 win. Swinney was quite emotional and provided an interview chocked full of great quotes, but viewers missed out on a good portion of it when ESPN cut to its studio and showed anchors Jay Harris and Kevin Connors sitting around, doing nothing:

Did Swinney curse or something during the interview? Did they have to dump out of it? Or was there just a technical error at play? Announcer Chris Fowler says it was just a technical glitch:
Apologies for glitch during Dabo Swinney's emotional postgame interview. Wrong button hit – interrupted his answer. Live TV

Whatever the case, we sure hope Harris dominated that game of Candy Crush.
Here is video of the full interview.
