"Our identity as a team this year is playing the next week," quarterback Trevor Knight said. "It's about us and a nameless, faceless opponent. And that's no disrespect to who we're playing, but we want to worry about us and play as best we can."
"We're not over-emphasizing this week and that's not discrediting Alabama and what they've done," he said. "But this isn't the end all, be all. This is the seventh game of our season. We still have a bunch of games after that and we realize and respect the opponent that we're playing but we're not making it on a pedestal or anything like that."
