This match-up between two storied programs has the excitement and tension heating up. Here's what some players and coaches had to say Monday.
"You don't need much motivation to play in a game like this or game like Colorado game, so we've worked hard just like we always have been, we're excited to play but we're not worrying too much about what the media is expecting," said Quarterback Zac Taylor.
"We know it's going to be a battle out there, and we have the utmost respect for them, they have an outstanding coach one we're very familiar with know coaches well and their players are outstanding," said Defensive Coordinator Kevin Cosgrove.
"Regardless if we're up or down or underdogs, we're still gonna come here and play the type of football we know how to play," said I-back Cory Ross.
"We've had a month to prepare and we're a different football team, tahn we were a month ago, so we're really excited about the improvement we've made in a lot of areas of football and we played out best at the end of the season and we're exctied to get back on the field and play one more time," said Offensive Coordinator Jay Norvell.
One thing was certain, the players and coaches were ready to stop talking and get into the game.
