Quotes and Stats: Baylor moves to 5-0

October 1, 2016

Baylor (5-0) left Jack Trice Stadium with a narrow victory over the Iowa State Cyclones on Saturday afternoon.

Opening statement:

"Let me just start out, I would like to say how impressed I am with Matt Campbell and the Iowa State kids and coaching staff. What a great, great plan they had coming in. In the first quarter they had us struggling on both sides of the ball. I thought offensively with their motions and their trades and the things they did that kept us off-balance. I can't say enough about how hard their kids played today. This is one of those games where I'm absolutely tickled to death to win, but my heart goes out to those guys because I don't think they could have played any harder today. I watched them on film and I tried to tell our players, from their first game to their fourth game, you could see improvement every week. You could just see them get better and better and I think going forward, they've got the right guy here and they're going to be a force to reckon with. As much as anything, I'm just proud of our football team."

On defense clicking in the fourth quarter: 
"I think a little momentum. That helped us. We did this last week, where we got into the fourth quarter and the defense seemed pretty fresh and our guys were still ready to play. This is not really a defensive plan to let the offense wear down by being out there too much, but I really just felt like at the end we got a little bit of momentum. The offense was playing really well and all of a sudden our guys saw, `Hey, we might be able to get this thing done.'"

On Shock Linwood: 
"I told Shock back in the hallway that this is the Shock Linwood that everybody told me about. This is the guy that everybody was talking about and we didn't really see that guy early. He got challenged when he didn't play a lot last week, and he had a great week of practice. That's typically what happens: You practice well, you play well. I was just happy for him."
