" I am so proud of this team," Head Coach Mike Schmidt said. " If this game isn't exactly what this team is about. That is a great team across the way and legitimately a top ten team in the country and our guys just battled. They get the turnovers in the red zone. This game is exactly what this team is about. They might not be the best, they just play and play and play and so proud of them."
" We started off a little slow again," Quarterback Drew David said. " That has been frustrating the last couple of games we started slow, but then we were able to get things going. At the end there, we just hung on and it was good to come out on the right side of things this time."
