Here is a look at what Oklahoma State players and coaches were saying after the Cowboys’ 37-31 loss to Florida State:

OSU offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich: “We don’t have a crystal ball that we look into and say we want x-amount of points or x-amount of yardage. We’re playing to win the game. We’re disappointed that we didn’t come away with a W, but we did fight real hard and played tough.”

OSU quarterback JW Walsh: “I’m not really one to really grade myself. I think you can grade the offense. And I think there were mistakes and there was good things … We’ll fix what we need to fix and move forward.”

OSU defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah: “I treated (FSU) like they were any other team. I have all the respect for (Jameis Winston). He’s a Heisman Trophy winner and a national champion, we trained really hard for this game.”

OSU cornerback Kevin Peterson: “I knew at kickoff that we were in this game. The freshmen were kind of wide-eyed, but they were just as fired up as we were. They were just as ready for this as we were. They were trying to get in the game and make plays as much as we were.”

FSU quarterback Jameis Winston: “You know, in the locker room, it was more of a celebratory, you know, kind of thing. But we got to get better. I told the guys, hey, that’s an eye opener. They played their tails off. So we got to go higher.”
