On the season being here:
We’re excited to finally get into the season, get into the games. We have to prepare well the next few days and then travel Sunday.
On Louisville’s O-Line:
They have a lot of experience up front. They have a lot of guys who have played in a lot of games. They’re well coached and have good technique.
On whether it’s weird playing them back to back:
It’s the first game of the season. We played them in the bowl game. Any first game is exciting. I wouldn’t say weird but definitely exciting.
On opening in the ACC helps:
Definitely. Opening up with an ACC opponent makes it that much bigger.
On whether he will watch games Saturday:
You just kind of live in the moment, watch the games. Saturday will be like a Thursday for us. We just have to focus day by day.
On the togetherness:
I think we’re a lot more together than we were at the start of camp. Cohesiveness across the team has been good. We’re all playing together on defense right now and that’s exciting.
On how this team is different than back in December:
I think we’re a totally different team now than we were in that month and in that game.
