On seeing Mike Fafaul play:

I love having him back there and excited for him and had all the confidence in the world and was just happy to block for him.

On what they'll do differently:

We focus on the concepts the coaches put in there and execute them. They add new concepts each week, but overall, they're the same concepts. We just have to work hard and get better.

On staying on the same page:

We just all have to come together as a group of offensive linemen. I have confidence in this group. Come together as one, have a 1-0 mentality and come together and work hard each day.

On Utah's physicality:

They're a physical team, we know that every year. We have to play every game and play above our ability and get better.

On staying confident:

Despite the record, we take each week with a 1-0 mentality and each practice, focus on our technique and come together as a team and not let our record get to us.
