Duke coach David Cutcliffe said this Clemson team is the best team he's faced in his 11 seasons in Durham. "They are a great football team, every position. They are the best team that we've faced since I've been at Duke from a physical standpoint." And that would include the 2013 Florida State national championship team that Duke played that year in the ACC championship game.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney and Duke coach David Cutcliffe have long had great respect for each other, but Cutcliffe's wife Karen said that respect was never more apparent than the gift waiting on them when they arrived in their hotel room Friday night. Karen said there was a big basket of pumpkin bread and muffins in their room with a note from Dabo and his wife Kathleen that read: "We love y'all."

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said he isn't interested in being compared to Alabama and Clemson as CFP contenders. "We're not interested in being compared. All we want is to be playing our best in November. We're playing really well right now, especially on defense."
