Citadel Head Coach Kevin Higgins “Our offense moved the ball at times, but our defense turned the football over. I told the guys in the locker room that there were enough good points into today’s game that give us hope for the season. Unfortunately, we had too many penalties on defense and turnovers on offense that we need to work on.”

“Andre Roberts did a great job. He got behind defenders and caught the football in critical situations. It was harder for him when Clemson put two defenders on him, but overall he did a great job.”

“The result is what the result is. I’m going to take more positives than negatives out of this game going into our next game. Clemson is a great team, and I’m proud of the effort our players showed today.”

Clemson Head Coach Tommy Bowden “We established a running game this week after having a poor performance last week. The players did well from the beginning. We turned it over early, but rebounded and hopefully we will learn from it.”

“The offensive line played well today. The biggest thing was that they learned to work together. Last week they saw the level of intensity they needed to have as we go into conference play.”

“Michael Hamlin is a smart player. He had three interceptions which tied the school record today. Vic Koenning had a good plan putting him in the middle so that he could read the quarterback. He’s a great player and leader for us.”

“Citadel’s quarterback Bart Blanchard did a great job under pressure today. He not only passed well, but ran well too. He did an excellent job of managing the offense.”
