Air Force head coach Troy Calhoun says this is best Utah team ever: "It's probably, maybe, the best team they have ever had there. Two years ago they were outstanding and at the end of the season they very easily should have had an opportunity to play for a national championship or even a vote for the national championship. This squad is better. They are much faster and more athletic, especially at the skill position and defensively. They are an excellent football team. What is impressive is you can pick any game in the last month and they have been dominate across the board."
Gene Chizik trying to keep Auburn focused: “I think being mature and staying grounded is the key. You can be happy with results, but shouldn't be satisfied with where we are at. The only thing that matters is this Saturday.”

Dan Mullen reacts to linebacker Chris Hughes suspension for illegal hit: "This is a teachable moment for Chris and our entire team He'll face the consequences for his actions and learn from it."
