"They dominated on both sides of the ball. They answered real quick and got up early. Auburn has been playing good lately and really came to play today."
Auburn put pressure on the quarterback. Was it due to the blitz?
"They blitzed early in the game, but basically, they had speed rushers on the ends. And they have a great speed rusher in Torbor and they have the big guys in the middle. That's what they relied on and they did a dang good job."
You were beaten up pretty good during the game. Are you ok, now?
"During the first half, I remember the hit but not who did it. He knocked me dizzy a little bit. It was a great hit. They have a big, hard-hitting team. I wasn't focusing right. I started feeling better in the second half."
