On going to Indy...

It feels good. It's going to be my first time playing in a championship game so I feel really good about.

On his play...

I've been trying to work on smaller things and being patient and using my vision and my strength. Every play counts. I just take it play by play and everything else will work out.

On the team...

We know how to endure. I feel like that's Spartan football. We are able to get beat down and then still stand up and fight through it. As players get hurt we have others players that can step up and make plays. Whoever is up, we give them then head nod, and they go out and make a play. It's important to start strong but I believe we really have been able to finish strong the past couple of weeks. It's big for the seniors. We want to go out with a big bang. The lost to Nebraska was a wake up call. It let everyone know that we really have to come out and play. All teams are going to come out and play Michigan State hard.

On Jack Allen's touchdown...

It was pretty good. He had that stiff arm at the end - that was pretty amazing. The stiff arm was pretty good but now he has to learn how to move.
