Satterfield: Tigers most "physically talented team" he has faced

Clemson’s defense has allowed just two touchdowns and two field goals this season

Appalachian State head coach Scott Satterfield talked to the media after his team's 41-10 loss against Clemson on Saturday afternoon and was extremely impressed by the Tigers' overall team including the talented secondary and wide receiver units.

“Clemson is a really talented football team and there’s a reason why they were picked to win the ACC and to potentially be in the College Football Playoff," Satterfield said. "I think Clemson is probably the most physically talented team I’ve faced as a coach. Their secondary is the best secondary I’ve ever faced. They make it so hard on you and there aren’t any holes where you can go get a free five yards. Shaq LawsonShaq Lawson

Clemson's offense was also a difficult matchup for the Mountaineers.

"And then their receivers have got to be the most talented group of receivers we’ve ever played against," Satterfield said. "They just keep coming with one guy and another and they just keep making plays. When you add their quarterback that can run and throw, then it becomes a very dynamic offense.”
