You guys seemed to get out of rhythm. What happened?
“You gotta give them credit. They played well. Obviously, their offense was playing well. Their defense did some things to stop us. Whenever we tried to get things going, we just kind of sputtered around a little bit and didn’t get it in the end zone. We needed to match them point for point, and we didn’t do that.”
Balance has been an OSU trademark this season. How much did you have tonight?
“That’s something we knew we could rely on. But we weren’t able to do that. They were scoring a lot of points. Play calls were good. We just need to go execute.”
How will you respond to this loss?
“We have a lot of in front of us. Ten wins ... a good bowl game. Things like that. Obviously, it hurts, we’re out of (the Big 12 race) now. But definitely a lot in front of us. We’ll bounce back, we’ll be fine.”
