AUSTIN BRYANT, Defensive End
On what he takes from contest that is a tie ball game:
“I learned a lot about teammates, offense, defense and special teams. It was a tough game from the first through the third quarter. We really opened it up in the fourth quarter. We will take the experience of a tough game, a team that is physical, that has good players and is well coached. It’s one of those games that you will be able to look back on later in the season and say that we have been here and help us build confidence later in the season.”

On where the defense stands four weeks into the season:
“I think we are in a good place, but there is so much room for us to still improve. We played great today, but we made a lot of mistakes that people don’t notice, but the coaches see it and we know it. I’m looking forward to getting back to work this week...looking at the film and seeing the good spots and the bad spots and correcting those for our big matchup this weekend against Virginia Tech.”

On the conversations among the defense when offense is struggling early on:
“We’re really just focusing on us, because we can’t control what the offense does. All we can do is try to stop other teams from scoring. When they were struggling, we were just ready to play...everybody was having fun playing, and everybody wants to play. We’re out there, so let’s go play.”
