NORMAN — What they're saying after Notre Dame beat Oklahoma 30-13 on Saturday night.
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops on missed opportunities: “We had it in the end zone, and again, it's a judgment call. They call holding. Those are frustrating situations. but that's the way it is. We didn't get the calls.”
Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly on the defense: “It's been a consistent part of why we're here. ... We have structured the game plan to keep the points down. We were willing to give up yardage in the passing game today to keep the points down.”
Oklahoma center Gabe Ikard on the fumbled snap in the first quarter: “We changed the play and there was miscommunication between myself and Landry. I snapped it when I normally snap it, and nothing good came from that. That was a huge drive kill for our team. On the first drive we were really rolling, and it's unfortunate that it happened. We eventually got that worked out though.”
Oklahoma backup QB Blake Bell on the team coming back: “Like Coach Stoops was saying tonight was a nonconference, and huge game, for Oklahoma. Everyone would have loved to get the victory, but we can't stop competing or stop giving everything that we have, everyday at practice. All we can do is get ready for Iowa State.”
Notre Dame QB Everett Golson on his thoughts after the tying touchdown: “Zero to zero again. I never really try to have the scoreboard influence what I feel. I'm not the type of guy to fumble under pressure. My whole goal was to show everyone that we could do this.”
