Opening Statement
"First of all I am very proud of our team with our first road game against a good team and getting a good victory. I am proud of the guys and how they responded to the eleven o'clock kick. We were concerned about getting up and getting off to a fast start and our guys were able to do that. We took a 35-0 lead at halftime and that gave us some breathing room. On offense we were able to run the football. Defensively, what really stood out to me was after we turned the ball over that first drive and they were able to hold them and they missed the field goal. I thought that was a key point in the game.

Defense played great again. We're glad that we have the off week now. I really like the momentum we have now. We talked about getting better each week and we have done that. I think we're in a good spot. We have a lot of guys that are banged up because it was a very physical game and we were kind of beat up coming into this game. We have some momentum. I am very proud of our players and coaches."

On how important it was for Kamryn Pettway to step up when Kerryon Johnson went down...
"KJ went down fairly early. Kamryn Pettway had to carry the load. He carried it 39 times against a good run defense. They are one of the best in the conference and one of the best in the country. So I was really happy with the way he carried the load. KJ was unable to come back, so we will see how his ankle is. It is good we have an off week."

On Sean White finding success...
"He did a great job managing the game again. I think coach Rhett Lashlee did a good job putting him in some good situations too. We are a run-play action team, and when we are able to run the football, it opens up the pass. I think Sean was very efficient throwing the football and made some very timely throws."

On taking a large lead...
"I think we continued that, especially in the first half and got off to a big lead."

On his play...
"I don't know if it was anything particular. We just did a good job with tackling the holes in certain zones that they were playing. Kyle [Davis] did a really good job taking a couple hits across the middle, and I think all day the receivers did well."

On keeping momentum...
"They're a really good defense. To be able to move the ball like that against them, it gives us a lot of momentum moving forward."

On playing multiple positions...
"Well, for me I feel really comfortable in both positions. Coach asked me to do it, and I have no problem with doing whatever is best for the team. It'll be that same way moving forward."
