Sooners defensive coordinator Mike Stoops on the win:

“I've never had so much fun in my life. What a classic in a lot of ways.

Sooners coach Bob Stoops, starting his postgame press conference:

“I made some progress with my voice on Thursday and Friday but now it's gone again.”

Sooners cornerback Aaron Colvin on the postgame celebration:

“I don't know how the '08 (Texas) Tech game felt but I've never experienced anything like this tonight. I wish I had a video camera after the game to record what it was like.”

Sooners wide receiver Kenny Stills on Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert, who defended Stills for much of the game, including on Stills' touchdown late in the second quarter:
