Oklahoma State Player Quotes

Quarterback Zac Robinson

 

On the final drive...

“We made a great play on the kick return and once we saw our field position, we were like Hey we are going to do this, we’re going to get it done.’ I remember (Dantrell) Savage making a great play over there on the sideline. I just threw it up, and he made a great catch and put us in position to kick that field goal.”

 

Wide receiver Adarius Bowman

 

On the win...

“I think this was a must win. I really think this win right here could spark us off to a lot more wins throughout the season. All I could think of since the Texas A&M game was our guys were trying real hard on finishing. We really left with a bad feeling after that A&M game. All our guys have put out all the extra work that they needed to go out and learn to finish.”

 

On the OSU defense...

“My hat was off to the defense because coming into the game, they hadn’t gotten many turnovers. I think tonight they had two or three crucial turnovers and three-and-outs. When your D’ is playing like that, I think our offense can hold the other end up. We did a great job, special teams too. I am just full of joy right now.”

 

Kicker Jason Ricks

 

On his game-winning field goal...

“I saw Savage make a great catch there, and Zac made a great play for us. Brandon was playing awesome. They got me down into position to win the game. It just felt normal. I saw that they had three timeouts, and it was just the same old thing. I just got comfortable out there and made the kick. I was pretty comfortable. I felt great all day. I was practicing, and I hadn’t missed a field goal all day. So I was really comfortable.”

 

Offensive lineman Brady Bond

 

On the bye week...

“Being in the Big 12 you have a big game every week. We’ve got this extra week to get some extra practice in to get ready for Texas. They are a good team so we are going to have to be ready for them.”

 

“We are in control of our own destiny right now. So, we just have to take each game and focus on that week and practice as hard as we can and see what we can do on Saturday.”

 

On the game’s final minute...

“We were pretty calm on the sidelines. We knew we would have another chance after that happened. I don’t think anyone on our sideline was nervous. We knew what we could be doing. We were moving the ball well in the second half. It was pretty laid back on the sidelines, and we just went out there and took care of business.”

 

Cornerback Perrish Cox

 

On his 98-yard kickoff return...

“I was mad. I wanted a big return to redeem myself. I was mad at myself for getting beat on the play before. Coach (Joe) DeForest chewed me out and told me I had to redeem myself. I just cut it back, and the field was wide open. I saw the cross field open so I just took it back the other way.”
