Williams spoke with The Oklahoman after OU beat the Irish 35-21 inside Notre Dame Stadium.

Q: A lot was made about you guys only rushing for 15 yards against this team last year. How different did today feel?

As a running back, (last year's performance) is disrespectful to me. We want to go out there and run the ball, so that's what we have to do.
