→”My sophomore year we won, and getting that gold hat is a great feeling. It feels like a national championship. I want to get that feeling back.”

— Senior offensive tackle Trent Williams

→"I’m sure they’re a little bit bitter about beating us last year and us going off to play in the Big 12 Championship, but at the same time, we’re a little bit bitter that they beat us last year.”

— Junior quarterback Sam Bradford

→"Chills run through everybody with this game because it’s rivalry. And who doesn’t love rivalry? You want to be able to say our school is better than yours. When you’re in the locker room, you think about all the past great games and all the things that have happened, and you just want to be known that when our team came through this year, we came out on top.”

— Junior defensive tackle Gerald McCoy

→"We don’t get into revenge stuff, I don’t think that’s ever a good motivator. Whenever someone’s doing that, that’s sort of disrespecting the other team. ‘Oh, so they had no business beating you, right?’ So, I’m not buying any of that.”

— OU coach Bob Stoops
