Cincinnati Head Coach Brian Kelly
"Well, another boring game. I hope ESPNU thanks us for the ratings. Again, I think the thing that stands out, more than anything else, is BIG EAST football is a battle, right to the very end. West Virginia is a great program, and to take the belt from them you got to keep playing."
"A lesser team, and I'm talking about the Cincinnati football team, a lesser team would have folded under those circumstances. Obviously, giving up the points we did late, all of the momentum was with West Virginia. We got the big stop to hold them to the field goal in OT, and then we were able to score the TD."
"It was just a great football game, one that we knew that we had to win if we wanted to talk about being a BIG EAST contender."
Going into OT...
"Clearly, we got some momentum back on the stop and we were able to make some plays."
On the open-field tackling...
West Virginia Head Coach Bill Stewart
"We have a hurt football team in there because we lost and that is never fun. We got it back to 0-0 and that's all I could ask of them. There were some things I was not pleased with and some things that I'm very pleased with. My hat is off to Coach Kelly and his football team. They beat us at home."
"We didn't block well in the first half but we got better. I saw some pretty good defense on both sides of the field. The defense was outstanding. It's tough to win that way."
"No timeouts left on the clock-, we're playing to win this baby so that's why we did what we did and we tried to get more points."
On Pat McAfee...
What he told the team after the game...
