Ohio Safety Hilton Dawson III

On playing his last collegiate football game on Saturday:

It's big. Since this is really my only season here at Ohio...to cap it off with a bowl game, it's very special. I'm just soaking it all in. I'm excited and anxious, but I'm ready for it.


On the trip itself:

This experience has been everything and more. New Orleans is a good city with a lot of culture and history. I've just been in awe since I've been here. I've always dreamed about playing in a bowl game and it's been great to see it firsthand.


On keys to his own performance tomorrow:

I'll be fine on the field. As far as my preparation goes, I've never really had a problem in that area. When it's time to kickoff, I'll be geared up and ready to go.


Ohio Defensive Lineman Marcellis Williamson

On playing his last collegiate football game on Saturday:

I feel like, right now, nothing else matters. I'm going to go as hard as I can every snap. I'm ready. We're ready as a team. There's no turning back now. We've got to get it done. This is my last time playing with these guys and I just want to make the best of it. I want to play the hardest I've ever played in my life.


On the game:

This is a big deal. We can make history...and it's not about how you may look on TV. This is about being a part of a legacy and being a part of something bigger. As seniors, this is how we show the underclassmen what playing football is all about...trying to win championships and bowl games year in and year out.


On New Orleans:

This is my first time here and this city has so much to offer. That said, right now the fun is over and it's time to handle business.


Ohio Offensive Lineman Eric Herman

On the game:

We just have to go out there and play like we know how to play. We know our keys, but really, we just have to get it done. We know our fundamentals and now we have to execute and get these seniors out of here with a good win.


On the prospect of capturing the school's first bowl victory:

We've really been talking this week, amongst ourselves, that we want to make history here. Nobody can take this away from us if we get that win. We're going to give it all we have.
