vs. Penn State

Quarterback Matt McGloin
On the controversial fumble

"We're not going to get that call here. We're not going to get that call ever, against any team. It doesn't matter who the referees are, we'll never get that call."

On the wind
"It's always tough. A couple of times the ball carried on some corner routes, but it's the same wind for them so we have to deal with it and keep playing."

On the turnovers
"If you turn the ball over three times, you can't win against a team like this. They'll find a way to win."

Running Back Zach Zwinak
On Nebraska's defense

"Coming into the game we knew they were going to be a good defense, and they were going to be concerned with stopping the run, considering the wind today."

On what he saw on his 50-yard touchdown run
“An opening. The hole opened up, and I just ran. It's exciting because there's nothing between you and the endzone, and you just have to outrun the defense."

Cornerback Stephon Morris
On what turned the game in the second half

"They just kept fighting. We were fighting too, but they made more plays than we did. The losses that we've had have been all about the second half."

On the controversial fumble
"The referees did they best they could, but we put ourselves in that situation. We could have gotten some more third-down stops, we could have stopped (Nebraska quarterback Taylor) Martinez, and we could have stopped the run. You can't leave the game in the referees' hands, we know that. They're not perfect; nobody's perfect. That's just on us."

On if they played well enough to win
"We had opportunities to win, and we should have won. That was a game we should have won. We could have played better, but at the same time we should have won that game. We gave away that game."
