Senior Cornerback Dion Byrum
On the final play:
"There wasn't much to it. I read the quarterback, made the break, and made the play."
What was going through your head as you were running down the field on the last play:
"The game was over. I can go home now. It was a long game, a long tough game."
On the record crowd and ESPN:
"It helped the school out, the program and Coach Solich. Being on ESPN and the sold out crowd did us a lot of good."
Freshman defensive end Jameson Hartke:
On the defense's performance:
"We knew by the first quarter that the defense was going to have to win this game. We just stepped it up and played as hard as we could."
On his first home game as a freshman:
"These guys talked about wanting to win so badly because the seasons here haven't been as great It's great for me because I'm happy for them and they got a really good win."
On his quarterback sack:
"They were driving on us pretty well and in the huddle we were talking about how somebody needs to step up. Luckily, I got past my guy and the quarterback saw me coming. I tried to hold onto him as tight as I could and bring him down. It felt really good to make a play like that."
