"We're certainly happy with the victory."

"That's going to be the focus this week. Put Gardner-Webb behind us and move on to the next game."

"It's great for Russell and speaks to his decision making. He got lucky a couple of times through his streak but you have to get lucky a couple of times. I think he did a good job. They came with a lot of pressure and gave him the opportunity to make throws."

"It's great importance when you get down there to be able to put the ball in the endzone."

"We have a really good field goal kicker. Josh has done a great job."

"We didn't expect to play Bowens that much. We wanted to get him on the field so he could get back on to the field and touch the ball a few times... get the feel of playing college football again."

"It is what it is. Whoever shows up Sunday we'll start coaching them. It's how we approach injuries."

"Hopefully we're over this stretch of it. We haven't had a flu-reported case since Friday."
