Dave Doeren

"It's good to be 4-0."

"I always want to thank our fans and students."

"All four games were important wins, and I felt like today we did some things that we needed to do."

"Offensively it's been 20 years since we've run for 200 yards in three straight games."

"All of these are some things we can do better."

"Defensively I thought we bottled them up pretty well."

"A couple of penalties hurt us on some big plays, a punt return and a touchdown run. Other than that, I thought it was a great night and it's good to be sitting where we are right now."

"I think they are excited to play Florida State. It's why you come to play college football, to play against a great team."

"To have two undefeated teams in our conference opener would be exciting."

"We didn't play well last year against them."

"We'll continue to try and fix what's broke."

"We turn our attention to a talented team. They'll be jacked to play those guys, I know they will."

"I want the guys to be confident, but at the same time we have to play each week better than we did the week before to have a chance to win."

"It will be fun to play against a team like that. I'm really excited about it."

"We're young in some areas, we're starting a redshirt freshman at middle linebacker. Jerod Fernandez is going to get better and better."

"It's going to take a while to get the defense the way that we want it. We have a bunch of new guys... I don't know what people expected with 20 freshmen running around out there. It takes time."

"The older guys have to lead us and we have to play to the strengths of the defense."
