Aggies defensive coordinator Tim DeRuyter
"I want our guys excited. Atmosphere and a setting like this are why you play and coach in college football. You play defense with attitude and emotion, and anything that raises that level is good. I think our guys are going to be fired up for this. I know I am, and I know our staff is."
Cowboys defensive coordinator Bill Young
"I've been (to College Station) three straight years. I went there with Kansas, Miami and now here. So we're excited to have them in our place this year playing in front of a home crowd."
Aggies defensive back Trent Hunter
"We're ready for it. We've had a few good weeks, but we are ready to prove ourselves against a team that's putting up big numbers. If we have a big week against them it will put our name out there. We're ready for the challenge."
Aggies offensive lineman Evan Eike
"It'll be a big-time stage, a lot of fun and a fun environment. We want to start fast and well."
Cowboys defensive tackle Nigel Nicholas
"We watch film and have seen other defenses have success against them. We aren't copying them, but we are seeing what they are doing and we put that into our scheme and go out there and play football."
