On the final drives:

These are the type of situations that we live for.  The defense needing a stop to finish the game.

On if he's been in a game that the defense was on the field that much:

It was pretty crazy., It was hot outside, we have to just grind it out, gut it out through the win.  Each week is championship week, we have to make sure you get a W.

On looking at who was in:

It's just next man up. We don't complain. There are a lot of guys who have to step up.  A lot of guys out. Even Josh Woods went out and Cameron Judge stepped up. 

On if he thought they might run out of guys:

Nah, we got walk-on's.

On if they were exhausted:

Guys were tired, but our job is to play defense, so we have to go out there and gut up and stop them.

On Colorado having over 100 offensive plays:

The sun didn't help at all. BUt that's what we're here for. Play defense, get stops, get wins. We have improvements we need to make and we'll get ready for Oregon State. We can always improve.  The first half, we gave up like 6 points, then 20 something the second half. We just have to get better and get ready for next week.
