“I hope I go out the way I want to go out. I hope I go out with a win and playing very well. We'll see on Jan. 4 how that ends up.”
You have any interest in watching Johnny Manziel from the sideline?
“If you get a chance to watch it's in between series. For me it's communicating with the offense, and if you get a chance to watch the other team or watch the defense, it's kind of a bonus.”
You have a chance to prove that you're the better quarterback in the game. Is that a mindset you go into the Cotton Bowl with?
“I don't think so. You play against so many good players throughout the year. We've played Notre Dame, who had a Heisman finalist. We played Kansas State, who had a Heisman finalist. Now we get to play Texas A&M. The guy on their team won the Heisman. ... If he has a great game, he has a great game. I don't really have anything to do with his playing and what he'll do on Jan. 4.”
Who's going to be the starting quarterback in 2013?
“I have no idea. I don't know. You probably wanna ask Coach (Bob) Stoops or Coach (Josh) Heupel about that one.”
