Here's what OSU coaches and players are saying about the Cowboys' 33-24 Bedlam loss:

Cornerback Kevin Peterson on OU's last drive: “I felt like we just got caught up in the moment a little bit. People running around, missing assignments. OU was having great play calls. They caused some people to be missing. Caused some people (to be) out of position. They were doing tempo. We really hadn't seen that a whole lot. Just give ups to the OU offensive coordinator, because they were really calling the right plays.”

Offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich on the game plan: “In hindsight, there's always some calls you'd like to take back. We tried to do the best for our offense, which mixing in run/pass, play action, shots down the field. And the plays that worked were a result of that.”

Offensive lineman Parker Graham on Justin Gilbert's near-interception: “We went nuts. We thought Justin had the pick. For some reason, the officiating crew didn't' review it. I don't know the rules. I don't really know what goes into all that. All I know is our offense was ready to get back out there and seal the game for us. Just didn't work out in our favor.”

Linebacker Caleb Lavey on the loss: “It was hard to swallow, but there's no individual you could blame for this. It shouldn't have come down to the last drive. We should have made some plays earlier in the game, and we came up short. Having it come down to the last drive like that, it's a tough situation to be in.”

Defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer on the Cowboys' possible bowl destinations: “It's hard to think about that right now. My guts are churning right now.”
