Box Score

Head Coach Bobby Bowden:

“Let me thank you for a great weekend. The hospitality and entertainment and accommodations could not have been better. I was please with the crowd. Just everything around the game was great.”

“The game surprised me. I thought we would have a high scoring game since our offense performed so well leading up to this game. Our defense had struggled all preseason. But our defense just played beautifully. The defense could not have played much better.”

“BYU had every disadvantage they could face. The humidity, the heat, everything was in our favor, but they battled us even.”

“Atrews’ (Bell) performance did not surprise me considering his play throughout the spring and fall. He might be out No. 1 receiver right now.”

“Our defense played super tonight. The way we played was the complete opposite of what I thought would happen. I couldn’t believe. Mickey (Andrews) played a lot of people tonight.”
