GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The laptop issue from Saturday's Clemson-North Carolina State game is, well, a non-issue.

Atlantic Coast Conference spokesman Kevin Best said Sunday league officials conferred with Clemson and is "satisfied with their explanation" for why a laptop was on the sideline during the fourth-ranked Tigers' Saturday win at then-No. 20 North Carolina State.

Afterward, Wolfpack coach Dave Doeren said he had been shown a photo of the laptop. Doeren said he'd "like that to be investigated" because "I was told it's illegal to have technology on the sideline."

Clemson spokesman Tim Bourret said it was used by a student working with social media. Coach Dabo Swinney added: "It wasn't anybody from football, I can tell you that."

NCAA rules prohibit computer use "for any coaching purposes" during games on the sideline.
