On the fake field goal
We actually called it earlier in the first quarter on third down, but we got the first down and decided to wait on it. When we had the chance again in the second half, we called it and I was pretty excited about that.
On running the fake in practice
So far I haven't dropped one. We've probably done it six or seven times in practice and I've been 100 percent.
On special teams
Coach [Bobby] April does a great job. He takes his time in practice and does a good job in meetings trying to prepare the special teams players to do their parts. He knows that special teams can determine the outcome of a game and today was a great example of that. We were playing well on offense and defense, but special teams really changed the momentum.
Never miss a local story.
On executing the fake
I think the referee stood over the ball a little longer than we had anticipated and the linemen were telling me that they were waiting and trying not to give it away by looking over to see if I was open. It was just like we drew it up. [Punter] Brian [Moorman] threw a nice ball and I was able to catch it.
On the defensive line play
It was difficult because of their passing scheme. They throw a lot of short and quick passes and it's hard to get [in the backfield] because they have some good offensive linemen. We did have some good pressure from the inside tackles, Marcus Stroud and Kyle Williams. We had Aaron Schobel wrapping around. We had four defensive ends standing up and I was able to come through the middle. I think we were able to confuse their protection from a scheme standpoint. That's how we were able to be effective.
