Quotable

"They're an out-of-state opponent, which provides a unique challenge. It's coming at the right for us because it will allow us to try to get our season back on track. We need a game where we can just try a bunch of things to try to see what works that doesn't have so many long-term implications." – Coach Chris Handy
