Q: How hard is it to go out this way in your last home game?
Joel Klatt: Very hard, obviously. Everyone wants to play well in their last game in their home stadium. We didn't do that tonight. A lot of credit goes to Nebraska. They did a tremendous job offensively and defensively.
Q: Did they show you anything you weren't expecting?
JK: Not necessarily. They did a few adjustments. We were struggling a little bit with the max pressure they were bringing, trying to solve that for a couple series. But for the most part, they came out and played their base defense and their offense kept their defense off the field.
Q: Were you ever comfortable with that pass rush?
JK: I never really found a rhythm. Again, credit goes to the Nebraska defense and their coaching staff.
Q: Do you ever second-guess the rivalry aspect — does that get you too high?
JK: No, absolutely not. This program's tradition was built on having a standard of Nebraska. So, in order to maintain the tradition and the pride that we have in our program, that's going to continue to be our benchmark.
Q: What can the team do to still make it a good season?
JK: This game is a season in itself and can really define a whole year. Hopefully, it doesn't. We've had a pretty solid year up until now. It's just hard to put into words.
Q: Will you watch Iowa State-Kansas tomorrow?
JK: I have no idea. I have no idea.
