"You've got to get it done""The bottom line is when you're in a championship game, you've got to get it done. We just didn't get it done. Coaches, players, we just didn't get it done. They were the better team today."
— Nebraska coach Bill Callahan "We squandered too many opportunities on offense, realistically. Our defense played well enough and good enough through the course of the game for us to win. We put them in some bad spots." — Callahan "When you've got guys backed up on third-and-long, you can't let 'em out. It cost us. … It was just a couple of plays, the bomb and the third down. Those are the plays you've got to win on." — Nebraska linebacker Bo Ruud on OU's 66-yard touchdown in the first quarter, and a third-down conversion that led to a 99-yard touchdown drive in the third quarter.
