Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden

“It's early. You can see what we did Week 1, the corrections we made Week 2. We're just continuing to get better. It was the same way last year. Last year at Washington State, we didn't play great, didn't score a lot of points. But then as the season went on ... we got better every week. It's not going to be perfect early. We understand that. We're going to keep meshing.”

Arizona coach Mike Stoops

“Oklahoma State, I knew they were better. I think they're a much better team, a more complete team this year than they were a year ago.”

OSU safety Daytawion Lowe

“I feel pretty good when I'm in there. We do such a fast pace at practice that the game speed is pretty much slow.”

Weeden on Justin Blackmon's 12-game touchdown streak ending last week

“I felt bad about last week, but he's gonna score. Good luck keeping him out of the end zone.”

Arizona linebacker Paul Vassallo

“They're very good. They're big. They're athletic. They move well. And I think they showed that tonight.”

OSU defensive tackle Nigel Nicholas

“I don't think we've reached our full potential yet, but we're out there playing hard, and that's all you can ask for.”

Stoops on the Boone Pickens Stadium atmosphere

“It's a little bit like Oregon. People are kind of in your face, but they're just having fun.”
