They Said It: Penn State

Quotes from Nebraska’s 23-20 overtime win over Penn State.

Kicker Pat Smith on his long road to Nebraska and the game-winner:

This is what you dream about. This is the reason why I transferred to Nebraska for my final year of eligibility. It’s those kind of moments I’ve been dreaming about ever since I made the decision to do it. It’s really unbelievable. It’s something I’ll remember for the rest of my life.

Running backs coach Ron Brown on Ameer Abdullah’s eighth consecutive game topping the 100-yard mark:

It was a tough day for him, but you know what, he’s a fighter. He’s a battler. If you’re gonna be a great running back, you have to have tremendous resiliency. I mean, it’s easy when the sky is sunny and your offensive line is healthy and you’ve got your starters, and you’re going against a weak team and you’re racking up yards. It’s a whole different thing when everything’s against you.

Cornerback Ciante Evans on covering PSU WR Allen Robinson:

I think we did a good job. I was trying to stay on him, but my arm…I couldn’t play physical with him. I told the coaches that, I just told them to put Stanley (Jean Baptiste) on him. I just couldn’t hang.

Offensive coordinator Tim Beck on the state of the Huskers’ offensive line:

I think we did a good job. I was trying to stay on him, but my arm…I couldn’t play physical with him. I told the coaches that, I just told them to put Stanley (Jean Baptiste) on him. I just couldn’t hang.

Quarterback Ron Kellogg III on getting the call to pass on third-and-14 from the Huskers’ 1-yard line:

Being on the 1-yard line, I thought they were crazy.
