Senior Wolf Safety Sidney Wiley

Question: Going back to a bowl game, how does that feel?

Sidney Wiley: "Oh it feels good. It's two years in a row for me. I never had a chance to be a champion in high school or junior college, so this feels great to me."

Q: What about your ultimate goal? You guys still think you have a shot at the conference title?

SW: "Yes we do. Ever since the bowl game last year, we have been screaming for a conference championship. This year we have come in and worked hard in order to be conference champions, and hopefully after Saturday's game we will be, if Utah goes down at BYU. We need to go to Wyoming and do what we have to do too."

Q: Have you ever played in cold weather before?

SW: "No I haven't. Coming from Mississippi, I don't think it ever got nearly that cold down there. Playing in the snow is definitely not me, but I'm going to have to suck it up."

Q: They have a good offense so it could end up being a shoot out which you obviously don't want right?

SW: "Yeah, they have a very good offense. I respect their quarterback a lot. He's pretty good. I think our defense is playing so well now that if we get enough pressure on them, I don't think they will have too much time to throw it. I'm also looking for a couple more interceptions, which I need since I haven't had any in a few weeks."
