Texas Tech Head Coach Mike Leach
"We are excited to go to warm weather. It has been tough here for the last couple of weeks. I have been to Orlando a bunch of times and it's a great city. The whole program is excited about going."
On the way bowls are selected in the Big 12
"The whole process has been so tangled up. The Big 12 has a bunch of teams eligible so I knew there would be some shuffling going on."
On the importance of this game
"This game could represent our ninth win of the season and only one of three teams in the last 25 years have been able to do that here. That part is very exciting."
On the Clemson Tigers
"Coach Bowden is a good guy. I haven't seen much of them. I was able to see a few series of their game with Georgia but that is about
it. So we will get to work pretty soon on film."
Senior Quarterback Kliff Kingsbury
"It's going to be a lot of fun. Orlando has nice weather and we get a great opponent in a good bowl game. I am excited."
"We really want to win this game so we will go at it full speed ahead. There is always a sense of urgency especially now that this will be the last game of the season. We are going to try and go out on top."
