Wisconsin Player Quotes

Quarterback Joel Stave
On Nebraska's crowd

"Yes, that is the loudest crowd I have ever played in front of. It didn't seem to be a huge factor. We were able to get the calls off in the huddle, and when I was under center the linemen said they could hear me all right. I didn't think it played a huge factor."

On Nebraska's defensive changes after half
"Obviously, they made some good adjustments at halftime and did a good job plugging up our running game. That, obviously, didn't help us."

Wide Receiver Jared Abbrederis
On Nebraska's defense

"My hat's off to them. They did well shutting us down in the second half. We have to come out and just have a better mentality. As an offense we had them, we were up, we were doing well, and we just have to keep it going. We just have to watch the film, see what we did wrong in the second half, and try to fix that."

On Nebraska's defensive changes after half
"They changed some of their defense around. They had their safety over the top and the corner up on me, so trying to get outside releases were difficult. They did well. They had a good game plan. They changed it the second half, they played well, and they picked it up. I just thought they had more energy than us in the second half."

Linebacker Mike Taylor
On Nebraska's offense

"They are a good offense. Obviously, they can run. The defense, for the most part, played well, but they had some big plays on us, with a little bit of poor tackling on our part. Like I said, they are a good team. They can score; they can run."

On Taylor Martinez's running ability
"Obviously, their quarterback can run, and that's what they did. We dropped back in pass coverage and he scrambled for some big plays. We knew he could run, obviously. It was just a matter of time before they tried to use him more, and they used him well tonight."
