Kansas State Head Coach Ron Prince Quotes

On the game...

"It’s outstanding to go on the road and win a game in the Big 12. I want to congratulate our team. Our coaches and team were very focused. Overall, I am very pleased.

Texas A&M is a very good team and very well-coached. It’s my first trip to Kyle Field and it’s a great environment. My hat’s off to the fans. I had a chance to meet President (George H.W.) Bush before the game. That was an outstanding treat for me.

We really needed today’s win and we got it. We worked very hard on the blocked punt. I don’t know of a better punter than (Justin) Brantly. It wasn’t a perfect game but I’m very pleased with the effort. (Josh) Freeman had more carries than we planned and I’m very pleased with the offensive line. We thought his running game would be a huge factor. We had a young running back in the game and we didn’t want to put the whole load on him. This is a very big win for our kids and our program. It’s been since 1996 since we got a win here."

On next week's game with Colorado...
"To go on the road two weeks in a row is a huge challenge. This is a big confidence builder."
