Nebraska Coach Bo Pelini on the win

"I'm just proud of this whole football team. I'm proud of how they played. I'm proud of the effort, the attitude they brought to the game. I'm proud of everybody in there. I thought there was a good team there (in Oklahoma). There were 87 total plays and they sucked it up and found a way and I'm proud of that team tonight."

"That's a good football team we played out there tonight. Make no mistake, Oklahoma is a hell of a football team. We found a way. That game could have gone a lot of different ways, but we just found a way to hang in there and hang in there."

"I think there was probably a little extra spark in the stadium. That's the best I've heard our crowd in a while. It was good to see. I think it brought extra energy to us. I thank the crowd. I'll be honest with you, it hasn't been that way this year."

My little brother was over there (on OU's side) watching so I had to show him who is boss. It was fun.

It's a good win. It's one I expected in my book. We're not playing to lose. There's no point in playing then."
