Indiana's Bill Lynch on final offensive play: "What did I see in their defense? I saw a wide open receiver. That's what I saw. Unfortunately, we didn't make the play. (Offensive Coordinator Matt Canada) made a great call but we just didn't finish it off."

Lynch on his passion on the sideline: "Yeah, I wanted to win. The kids deserve for me to be fighting for them and that's what we did. We just came up a little short."
