“We don’t like giving up points, not even 3 points. So, if we can do that better, then we’ll have a better game overall.”

“He’d better hang on to that moment because they don’t get too many of those historically around here. So it was pretty good.”

Fullback Brady Ross on his touchdown

“Yeah, to get in the end zone was cool. Frankly, I’m probably more proud of some of the blocks I made because it was a 1-yard dive. Not to be self deprecating, but it wasn’t really a heroic effort on my end to stumble in for a yard.”

Wide receiver Ihmir Smith-Marsette on Tyrone Tracy’s route moves

“When he caught it, I was like, ‘Oh, that’s a great catch,’ and then he broke two tackles, and then I’m like, ‘Oh, Tyrone getting busy.’ ”
