"They're always a good team. Coach Patterson down there, he's a defensive coach, they always have a good game plan ready and we have to be ready and have a great week of preparation. It will be a good challenge for us. The main thing when you play on the road is you have to take care of the football, eliminate penalties, turnovers, things like that. We really just have to go out and execute. Like I said, they're a disciplined defense, they always are so we have to go play our game, be disciplined and do what we do." - Center Brad Lundblade
