This win gave the Bucs their first sweep of all road division games since 1979.  Cadillac had yet another 100- yard game with two scores and the Panthers only reached the endzone in the final seconds when the game was long decided.   "We've come a long way since last season, when were pretty much down and out," Michael Clayton said. "Right now there's a whole new atmosphere here. Everybody is revived."
