Q&A with A.J. Highsmith

Read on to see what senior safety A.J. Highsmith is saying a few days before the team's big game against Virginia Tech.

On moving on from FSU:
It helps a lot because you can't let it beat you twice. We have to focus and move forward. We have to take it each week, have to get better.

On having to bounce right back:
That's what we focused on all season. We have to take it one week at a time. We can't afford to slip up now.

On how negative people have been on UM since the loss:
We deal with adversity well. You can't dwell on that. We have to make the most of it and keep moving forward.

On what they learned Saturday:
We have to capitalize every week. We let that one slip away from us. We're approaching it the same way. That's our job as players. We have to stay focused so we don't have any slip ups.

On Virginia Tech:
They've been the champion numerous times. They're a great program and we respect them a lot because of it.
