Huskers Rally for 38-31 Win at Texas A&M
Head Coach Frank Solich
"That was a great college football game. Our kids showed tremendous heart and tremendous character for four quarters. Texas A&M did some good things but our kids hung in there. It is difficult to go on the road and overcome the turnovers and penalties. In terms of staying with it and believing in themselves, our kids did a great job. Our ball club and our players have great character and heart. We have come through some tough times and hung in there. We are going to enjoy this one and put it behind us. The way the game unfolded allowed us to get in the power running game. It came down to getting key first downs and keeping the drives going. They say you can't run the ball on these guys but we had to make it work. We overcame an awful lot. So many things happened in the second half. It was an unbelievable half of football. The interception by Philip Bland in the endzone is as big as it gets. I am as happy as can be for this program. When things go well you get a lot of pats on the back."
Linebacker Demorrio Williams:
"Personally it felt real good (to do this in my home state). They got ahead on big plays. The defense felt like we played good the whole game. Coming in the Blackshirts were going up against the Wrecking Crew and the best unit would win. Once we got the offense on the field we knew we would get the ball in the endzone."
