Duquesne Head Coach Greg Gattuso:
"We were a little frustrated at halftime. We challenged them to play our football, and to play up to our level. I thought we played great football in the third quarter. We were real sharp. We desperately needed to get our young guys in and get them some snaps. All we can do is play our best. If we do that, we'll be fine. I think we got that in the second half.

"We count on him and Jeremy Conley to make those plays. It was a great play. He does great things."
Cornerback Leigh Bodden on his TD:
"I saw the quarterback give a fake to the fullback, and saw the running back option out. I just tried to go for the pitch man. I wanted to respond to the first touchdown pass they got.
"In the second half, Coach told us to play how we normally play. [Trent Wissner] Wiss came up with a big play right off the bat to start the second half."
