Question: Are you looking forward to getting back to conference play and wiping that taste of the BYU loss from your mouth? How eager is everyone?

Sidney Wiley: "Oh, yeah. We're looking forward to San Diego State and the rest of the conference because we had the bye week and the time off to heal and work on all the mistakes we've made. Everyone feels pretty comfortable about the game and the rest of the season."

Q: Do you think you will have a busy day with their receiver, Jeff Webb?

SW: "Yeah I think I will be busy. I think they're going to try and air it out because they're thinking our defensive backs are pretty weak."

Q: Do you guys like that challenge?

SW: "I like challenges like that. I have three picks right now so I am looking forward to another one."

Q: Is there anything particular you worked on defensively during the bye week?

SW: "I would say our effort moving towards the ball. We aren't where we were last year when we would all start picking up on the ball when it was in the air."

Q: So you are going to be more aggressive with the receivers?

SW: "Well we looked at film from last year when we played San Diego State and if you see how we swarmed to the ball compared to this year, it's totally different. I don't know if it was the mindset we had last year or what, but I think we are getting to that same state of mind and everyone is starting to get to the ball."
