Oklahoma sophomore receiver Sterilng Shepard, on the offense's balance:

“When you have the combination of both (run and pass), it is hard to stop. We got things going early and we tried to get into the end zone early. We feel like when we start well, we end up playing well.”

Kansas State junior defensive end Ryan Mueller, on OU's run game:

“They ran all over us. I do not know how else to answer that. They ran the ball on us and we did not stop the run. It was extremely frustrating.”

Oklahoma offensive coordinator Josh Heupel, on the game's impact moving forward:

“At times, our kids and coaches too have been told they are not very good. They've been consistent, kept working, come back and played better. We are only as good as our next one. It's two weeks away.”
