Tommy Bowden Press Conference, Windows Media, (11:37)
"Overall, I thought we play well today. I was concerned starting three freshmen on offense, but everyone played with a lot effort. The new offensive line is progressing with each game. Brad Scott has done a good job in gaining continuity in the offensive line rotations."
"Coach O'Brien did a great job getting his team prepared for this game. They are a more disciplined team this year."
"Da'Quan Bowers will continue to improve provided he stays healthy. He is a very mature player for his age. He gives a lot of effort. Jacoby (Ford) also had a lot of great looks today. C.J. (Spiller) created a lot of great plays today running north and south to move the pile."

"I thought I ran very physical today; it was good to show my offensive line that I'm going to run hard for them. They did a really good job blocking today. We knew we were going to have to lower our shoulders and get the tough yards. That's the kind of mindset I came into this game with."
QB Cullen Harper, Windows Media, (2:05)
"It was good that I came out and threw the ball well. The defense did a good job, and we got it started in the right direction. The O-line did a great job, the running backs ran the ball extremely hard, and we found ways to get the receivers involved; we've got to continue to do that. They got the momentum early on and we had to put that behind us."
DT Jarvis Jenkins, Windows Media, (14:54)
"I'm starting to feel good a little bit, starting to get used to playing a little more. I just tried to stay low and come off the ball like I was supposed to. After that interception, I felt like the team needed a spark, and that blocked extra point gave us confidence. Now, I've just got to keep doing what I've got to do to become a good player."
WR Jacoby Ford, Windows Media, (1:41)
"We just came out and executed really well. When my number was called, I just made plays today. If you have a good week in practice, then you'll play well in the game. I just want to go out there and put the team in position to win."
