Syracuse senior left tackle Sean Hickey appears very impressed with the accumulated talent that the Clemson coaching staff has assembled on the defensive line. Clemson has a nation-leading 66 tackles for loss on the season.

"That whole defensive line is the best D-line overall that this team has seen in five years," Hickey told the Syracuse media. "Easily. No one comes close."

He also had kind words on the linebacker play for the Tigers.

"In terms of a front four and even a front seven because they have really good linebackers, they're the best that this program has seen since I've been there," Hickey said.

The Clemson vs Syracuse match-up will be played in Death Valley on Sat. 10/25 at 7 PM and televised on ESPNU.
