  Head Coach Bob Stoops

“Congratulations to Coach Sherman’s staff and Texas A&M. They played an excellent football game and did the things necessary to win.
"It was kind of the same recipe for us, where we had a chance to win when we crawled our way back. We started the game off in a horrible way. The ball bounced up and a safety right off the bat and they go down to score. So within three minutes we were down 9-0.
"I really felt good at half that it was only 12-0. We came out in the third quarter and played well. The story of the game is we clawed our way back and missed some opportunities on three different occasions down on the one yard line.
"I see it as very similar to the way we lost at Missouri. I’m proud of the way we fought back. We played hard, A&M just played better.”
  Defensive Coord. Brent Venables

“I thought our guys played enough to give ourselves a chance. We were dominant, had complete and total control, in the third quarter. We gave up two long runs and a long pass when it counted the most. Different game, same story. At the end of the game it was a couple score game and we just didn’t make them work for it. That’s what was frustrating. Basic fundamental breakdowns gave them huge chunks of yards, field position, points and momentum when it counted the most.”
  Freshman WR Trey Franks

“I felt like we prepared well. Coming into A&M, it’s a good place to play, it’s pretty loud. We just couldn’t connect on that one big play. I feel like we were still in it and could have come back. We just didn’t finish it at the end.”
  Sophomore QB Landry Jones

“A&M played a great game, they outplayed us tonight. They were doing a good job of covering our vertical routes. We had a go route early in the game that I missed. You can’t do those things on the road and expect to win. They just stopped us on the goal line. We expect to score every time we get the ball. Once you get down there and they stuff you there’s not much you can do about it. They made a great play. They played a lot more physical and had lower pads.”
  Head Coach Mike Sherman

“I’m proud of the guys. I thought they prepared well this week. This was a big game for us and was the next step for us. It wasn’t the final step, but the next step. We played real well. We responded in difficult situations. They played with the heart of an Aggie and I’m proud of them.
"Offensively we did some good things in the first quarter. We slowed down in the middle but picked it up in the end. We were finally able to get a rhythm going. Our field position was circumspect and we were backed up quite a bit at times. In the third quarter we couldn’t get anything going. In the fourth quarter we responded well.
"Hats off to OU, they played a great game, but we had them here at home and we were able to pull it off.”
