Morriss on Oklahoma
"Oklahoma is a good football team, there's no doubt about it. You don't get to be the number two team in the country these days without being a decent football team. They look pretty good. I really think our kids are going to just line up and play as hard as we can for as long as we can and see what we can get done. We respect Oklahoma, obviously, but I don't see us conceding and hanging our heads."

Stoops on Baylor
"Baylor's a much improved team. You look at their scores and the way they played everybody and then their overtime victory a couple weeks ago with A&M. (Baylor) is a team again that's much improved and played us pretty well a year ago. We've got to go down there and play as well as we can. That's what we're focused on and prepared to do."
