— Says Alex Woods’ hit on Bo Nix was a play they asked Pac-12 for feedback on.
— On 62-yard TD: Wished safety rolled over.

— Utah is an aggressive defense. 12, 13 and 14 personnel on offense. Cam Rising is “relentless competitor.”
— Bennett Williams being in the slot as much as he has been is in part because of all that he can do.
— On Camden Lewis’ range at the end, felt like they needed some more than they had
— On DB’s mood: “Let’s work.”
— On senior day: 18 seniors will be recognized and some will come back
