Utah Coach Kyle Whittingham
"We responded well after last week. Our energy and passion was great in the first half and we executed well on offense, defense and special teams."
"It's nice to get back on track and respond to the loss like we did. Today we rebounded well and played good football. Now we just need to continue to move forward to the next game."
"BYU is still a rivalry game and will always be a big game even if it doesn't have conference title implications."
"The seniors now get their last regular season game at BYU and there is not much extra motivation necessary."
"We got off to a positive start, Wynn threw well and the receivers made plays. The offensive line protected well against a tough San Diego State scheme."
"Jordan looked pretty sharp today and although I'd like to see a higher completion percentage he was very accurate throwing deep and continues to get better each week."
"The TCU game left a bad taste in our mouths, we wanted to come out and finish strong for the seniors."
"Lindley is a great quarterback, a pro style quarterback. He played well tonight, but our defense was tough."
"I thought I played pretty well especially in the first half, I need to come out in the second half and play better."
"It means a lot to play here for three years, the fans are amazing and I wish I could play an extra year."
San Diego State Coach Brady Hoke
"Utah got up on us quickly. We gave up big plays and we had a couple of penalties on both sides of the ball that didn't help us. We put ourselves back a little bit offensively and defensively and then we had some things go wrong. We have to do a better job of stopping the big plays defensively and have to get better as a team."
"I don't think the team was unprepared. Our guys were ready to play, but we played a tremendous football team. Utah is an awfully good team. They have been cultivating that for a couple of years. They are well coached and play hard."
