OSU coach Mike Gundy: Texas a much better team in 2011

Here's a look at what coaches and players had to say after Oklahoma State's 38-26 win over Texas:

* OSU coach on Mike Gundy on winning in Austin in back-to-back seasons: “It's not easy to come down here and win. They're a much better football team this year than they were last year. Last year, when we came down here, in my opinion, they were really reaching and it was a much easier task. This year, they've made some changes and obviously played much better.”

* OSU safety Daytawion Lowe on his forced fumble in the fourth quarter: “Caleb Lavey came off the edge and through the (defensive) tackle, and I just came around free. And when (UT quarterback David Ash) turned his back, I knew I had a chance to strip it, and that's what I wanted to do. I thank God for giving me the opportunity to make that play.”

* Texas coach Mack Brown on the fourth quarter: “I thought on fourth-and-three we were in position. We had Fozzy (Whittaker) open, and the ball was inches short. Then even when we come back and get the interception for the touchdown, it happens to be a safety. So we didn't get the breaks, or make the breaks, we needed to in the second half to win the game.”

* Texas tailback Fozzy Whittaker on the UT rushing attack: “Going into this game, we wanted to test the interior of their defense. Our game plan was just pound it at them, run it. Whoever was in, just run it at them as hard as we can and get the yards. I thought we did a good job pushing downfield.”

* OSU quarterback Brandon Weeden on winning the day after his birthday: “This is the best birthday present I got, without a doubt. I said on Monday, a win would be the best I could get. You always hear about Mack Brown's record of 13-0 (the game after) the Red River Rivalry, but this is sweet.”
