Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops, on the team: “I love our team. I love the attitude, the way they work, the way they're willing to be coached. I've got to mention the key pieces we don't have now. They were all great players, two of them captains.

“Are we in great shape? No. Am I excited about our team and our opportunity and willingness to fight? I am.”

Oklahoma senior receiver Jalen Saunders, on the win: “I felt like we really played like a team today. We did a great job offensively and defensively. They had a high-powered offense, and we knew that. We knew that as an offense, we had to control the ball.”

Oklahoma sophomore linebacker Eric Striker, on playing Tech's offense: “That was a tough fought game. They did a great job all night, Texas Tech's offense, but we kept pushing every time we went out there, and it worked.”

Texas Tech junior tight end Jace Amaro, on his second-quarter fumble: “I've never fumbled in my life. I fumbled for the first time ever in the biggest game I've ever played.”
