On OSU's defensive performance in Bedlam, and what it means for the Fiesta Bowl:

The OU game was absolutely the best defensive performance the Cowboys had all season. They blitzed, blitzed and blitzed some more and really took advantage of the fact that Landry Jones doesn't always perform well under pressure. Justin Gilbert and Brod Brown were also excellent in coverage — I think that was an overlooked part of Bedlam. Bill Young deserved a game ball for the way they attacked the Sooners, and I'm sure we'll see that aggressiveness in the Fiesta Bowl.

On Mike Gundy's contract:

OSU has sent out a release saying that, now that the season is over, they are in the beginning stages of working on a new deal. I think everyone knew it was coming and thinks that's deserved. We'll have more details once it's finalized.
