On the lack of penalties since the Texas A&M game:

“I'm impressed with our team in that area as much as anything, because we were poor in the A&M game. We just about took ourselves out of the game with penalties. Fortunately, we were able to get it rolling in the second half. Since that point, we've stressed the importance of not giving away free yards. At times, there's going to be some penalties, but what we went through at A&M is not acceptable. So we approached our team with that, we discussed it and they bought into that. Our players have done a good job with that and made better decisions. Obviously, all those things tie into being a disciplined football team.”

On kicking off at 11 a.m. for the second time this season:

“I would prefer to play all day games. Television, at times, has a different way of looking at that. I think the players enjoy playing during the day. You wake up early on game day, and your mind kind of starts spinning and it's going to stay that way until you kick it off. We enjoy getting out there and playing earlier in the day.”
