NEW MEXICO QUOTES
HEAD COACH Rocky Long
"It was a high scoring game because of the kick off returns. Turnovers and special teams make high scoring games. We ran the ball pretty well. I respect Utah's defense. They have a good unit of defense. Utah is a good team. We were just a little better today. No win is bigger than others. Last week against San Diego was just as big."
HEAD COACH URBAN MEYER
"I'm not quite sure what that was, other than we played a good team. The key now is to correct our mistakes. Everything we've worked for is still intact. For our defense to give up that many rushing yards, it is something we need to fix. I'm anxious to see how this team responds. We need some guys to step up now."
"To play was something I wasn't expecting at that time, but I think I did a pretty good job stepping in. The loss of Warfield hurts. He helped me learn the position and blocking schemes."
"We'll have to take care of the mistakes next week, we're not proud of giving up that many yards and points. This team has a lot of character and we'll just have to fix it next week."
"We got to get better. I think the loss of Warfield shocked us at first, but Liti played really well."
