"I couldn't be more proud of our players," coach Paul Petrino said. "They were focused on winning the football game and that helped them come out and play well early. They were told there were a bunch of things they weren't supposed to be able to do, but they did it anyway."
"Our guys are really excited to be here, and I think they're going to go out and play their best," Idaho coach Paul Petrino said. "I've been saying it since the season ended how proud I am of the players and the assistant coaches. We had a lot of work we had to do and a lot of stuff we had to overcome to get here. But we did it."
