Coach Broadway's thoughts on the overall game
"It's a good day to be an Aggie, it's a great win for us. We thought we could play with these guys and our guys played well and our coaching staff did an excellent job in preparation. Winning is all in the preparation and I think our coaching staff did a marvelous job this week and our players did as well. As a result of it we came out today and played a good brand of football. I'm not pleased with all the turnovers and penalties, so we have a lot of things to clean up. This is only one game, we can't get too far ahead of ourselves and we have a lot of work to do if we want to become a good football team, but it's a win and I'm proud of everyone involved in our program today."
Coach Broadway on the turnaround
"The players are doing everything and they deserve all the credit. Since day one we've preached stop the run, that's what we start everything with. Our second principle is to protect the football; we didn't do such a good job of doing that. We turned the ball over twice today and our third principle is to win the kicking game. We have to get better in our kicking game."
Coach Broadway on the games physicality
"Creating turnovers was huge. This was a physical game and our kids came out ready to play. This is probably the most physical game we've played. I am proud of how they played and responded. If we clean up our penalties, I like our chances."
Coach Broadway on winning
"We have the team believing that they can win and that they deserve to win. We spelled it out on what it takes to win: work ethic, fundamentals, technique and conditioning. They finally started to buy into it. They are finally starting to believe in themselves. They have as much right to win as anyone else. But hoping to win is not enough, you have to have the will to win, and we are finally seeing our guys with a little bit more will than we've seen before."
Coach Broadway on homecoming
"We have to realize we're not coming home, we're already here. We want them to enjoy homecoming, but our focus is on playing. They can enjoy themselves all they want after the ball game, but it's a challenge in black college football to keep a team focused during homecoming week. We just need to get our guys focused on playing because if you go out and get your butt beat you are not going to have a good homecoming. If you want to enjoy homecoming, go and win a ball game."
Senior cornerback Justin Ferrell on the postgame celebration
"The boys started dancing, the music was blasting and the intensity was up. It feels good to get out of here with a win. Coach Broadway always says to play hard for 60 minutes and I feel that we did. It could have been worse and really ugly for them. I know we made a lot of mistakes, but for the most part I think we did what we were supposed to do."
