Head Coach Bob Stoops
On Trevor Knight...
“He is a great leader. Players realize how hard he works. He’s a great teammate. He’s a bright kid, so he’s got respect. No question."
OC Josh Heupel
On implementing the zone read...
"I don't if it was trying. Our guys loved it and they are excited about it, it is something different. I think you learn a little bit as you go, as well. What works and what doesn't. We are continuing to get better at it."
DC Mike Stoops
On defensive flexibility...
“I think we have a lot of flexibility. We can go a lot of different ways. We’re going to continue to change our package week-to-week, and it’s built off a lot of the same principles, but different angles, different people, different alignments."
CB Aaron Colvin
On shutting out ULM:
“It feels great; It’s a confidence booster. But at the same time, one win or one loss doesn’t define you as a team or a defense... We are encouraged by the win but we have to continue moving forward."
RB Brennan Clay
On depth at RB...
“I think it is just really made for the run game this year. We were a little bit more pass-oriented last year. But that’s not going to be the case."
DB Julian Wilson
On shutting out ULM:
“We went into there knowing that we respected them as a team and they were a high-profile offense so really coming out there with a shutout was like a pat on the back.”
LB Eric Striker
On Saturday's game...
“We have to play football at the end of the day. It doesn’t matter what we do, what they do, the better team is going to win."
DB Quentin Hayes
On how the defense against ULM:
“I thought we played pretty well as a defense. We tackled well and got to the ball. We covered well."
DB Gabe Lynn
On West Virginia:
“They’re like a lot of other Big 12 teams, a lot of motions, a lot of switch sets. We just have to definitely be focused and watch a lot of film on them this week.”
Attending This Game
There is no experience like a game day with Oklahoma Football. Occasionally, visiting teams return tickets from their allotment days before kick-off. This opens up tickets for OU fans to purchase.
