TU coach Bill Blankenship on the Cowboys offense: “They're very efficient. They have a very good system and they have really good players. We talked about that all week. We think they're clearly one of the best in the country, and they didn't disappoint.”

TU running back Trey Watts: “Offensive line played great. I think it was one of the best games I've seen them play since I've been here. They just blocked their butts off and gave us holes to run through.”

Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden on Saturday night's lengthy delay: “Really and truly, once we were told we were going to kick it off, guys were turned back on and excited about playing. You don't want to sit around for three hours and wait around, but you can't control Mother Nature.”

Weeden on how he killed time during the delay: “I sat there with my offensive line and joked and laughed and ate some Cheetos and hung out.”

Cowboys defensive coordinator Bill Young on the doubt surrounding the game: “I think everybody felt the game might get called. But what are you going to do? Everybody's here. The fans are here. The players are here. If you can get it in, you try and get it in. Obviously, we're all happy we did get it in.”

OSU offensive coordinator Todd Monken on the performance: “Bottom line is I thought our guys handled the wait and coming out and having to play. I thought they handled it real well. We didn't start off the way we would like. Brandon wasn't sharp initially. We had a couple things early that we didn't get. But it's hard to ever know. You remember all the things you didn't get done. We can play better. But there was a lot of really good things we did.”
