"It's not like we're going out there and blowing them out," Maddy said. "It's always a fourth-quarter football game. ... We've been fortunate enough to win these past 11 times or whatever it's been, but we can't go out there and just assume we're going to win. They're going to give us their best shot."
"We all know it's a huge game, not only for Frank but for us," senior defensive tackle Luther Maddy said. "It's my last time walking through the tunnel at Lane Stadium, so I know I'm going to have some emotions running through my body. I'm sure all the other seniors will also. I think we're going to play our butts off this game, not only for us but for coach Beamer and for this team to keep this bowl streak going. It'll be a huge game."
