From The Locker Rooms....
Notre Dame Quarterback Ron Powlus
"There was no question coming in that they would be fired up and they were going to play their best game. They are a good team, they have good athletes and they play well when they come together. We knew that it would be a tough game in the first half, but we expected that our physical play would wear them down. In the second half, our offensive line executed well when we had to and our defense really stepped up."
"This was a very difficult week. We had to battle jet lag after the Ireland trip, catch up on our academics and prepare for a road game. We have a pretty good group of guys as far as getting focused and I think that we showed that today."
Notre Dame Running Back Robert Farmer
"Our strength is our power running game. We wanted to come in and make a statement by establishing the run. We didn't do that the last time we were here. I think that was the key to our win today. I'm glad that I could come in and help the team and that we got out of here with a win."
