On how important this game is for the seniors…
“Personally it’s important. For the team and the seniors it’s important but also the underclassmen. It’s 15 more practices for them and then of course the game. It kind of starts next season for them and ends our season and my four years. It’s important to the seniors but it’s also important for the team, collectively. It’s big.”

On how this bowl game is different than last year…
“I think we’ll be a lot calmer than we were. Last year was the first bowl for every player on the team so having that under our belts. Also, playing in a big stadium like we did last year, now we’ll be in the Titans’ stadium, it will definitely will be a cool experience. Having that bowl game last year is definitely going to help us.” 

On if they had a “happy to be here” mentality last year…
“We were definitely happy to be there and we’re happy to be there this year. I think it will help having that (bowl game) under our belt and being more calm and realizing it’s just another game.”

On if there is more urgency to win because of the way the season ended…
“I just think we’re hungry as a team. We’ve had the week off, we’ve had players coming in everyday watching film, doing workouts, getting their footwork right. I think the team is hungry.”

On Northwestern…
“I haven’t really watched them at all. They are 9-3, they’ve got a good team so now that we know who we’re playing we can finally start watching film on them rather than just watching ourselves everyday. I’m definitely excited to get in the film room tomorrow and see what they have but they are 9-3 and a good football team.”

On going to back-to-back bowl games…
“I think it just shows what the program is becoming. People are mad that we are 7-5 and the team is mad. We want to do better, we want to win every game, but back-to-back bowl (appearances) is pretty good.”

On what conversations have been like in the locker room since the Louisville game…
“Mr. Barnhart already talked about that and just how that wasn’t us and we didn’t show our true character there and we’re excited to get back on the field and show the fan base and the world who we really are.”
