Here is a sample of what Nebraska coaches and players had to say after the Big 12 Championship game:

Nebraska coach Bo Pelini on why he stuck with Taylor Martinez: “Because he's our starting quarterback, and he was healthy. There are some things he could have done better. But it extends well beyond the quarterback position. You know, he thought he did some good things. He did some things that, obviously, we'd like to have back.


Pelini on OU QB Landry Jones: I thought Landry made some good throws. He's a good football player. He has some good weapons around him, and he's going to make plays. You're not going to sit there and hold the football team with those weapons to zero points. But our defense I thought played well.”

Running back Roy Helu Jr., on his 66-yard TD run: “It was just really good blocking. And I think Brandon (Kinnie) or one of the receivers made a really good block down field, and I didn't do too much.”

Defensive tackle Jared Crick, on facing OU's offense: “We knew coming in they'd run a fast tempo offense. We had practiced for it; we were ready for it. I didn't think they caught us off guard at all. Just for the preparation that we had against it. And we saw it against Oklahoma State, and again last year when we played Oklahoma. So we were ready for it. I don't really think their fast tempo of offense really hurt us by any means.”
