Meyer talks about game

Read on to see what Florida head coach Urban Meyer was saying after their 26-3 win over Miami on Saturday night.

On the defense:
"Our defense has played outstanding two weeks in a row. We stand out like a sore thumb if we don't go hard…They had us on the ropes in the first half. We covered their receivers very well. It's really great progress from last year."

On special teams:
"I am very proud of how our special teams played. We blocked a punt and Chas Henry made some great punts; his hang-time was decent but he did shank one. Jeff Demps blocked a punt and that was the momentum shift. I wish we had recovered that for a touchdown."

On Miami's defense:
"They executed well. In the early parts of the game, they did a good job pressuring us. In the fourth quarter, we opened it up and made some plays."

On the offense:
"Miami threw some mix blitzes, raider blitzes and edge pressure. We used jet sweeps to counter and get Percy some decent yards. If I could do it again, I would have used play-action pass more in first half. In the second, we used more quick plays and bubble screens to move the ball."

On Carl Moore's catch at the end of the third quarter:
"It was the play of the day and it changed the game's momentum. It would have been fourth down if he hadn't made that play."
