    • QUOTES (3)

      • (on Brady Quinn's 45-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Samardzija with 27 seconds left in the game)
        Notre Dame Quarterback Brady Quinn: I thought I saw a window, I was about to throw, then I saw a defender coming that way so I kind of gave a pump and I tried to move him around. When there's that many guys in coverage, you've got to try to create something, so I moved out of the pocket and found a window to Jeff and he did the rest.
        Notre Dame Receiver Jeff Samardzija: He saw me, got it to me, and there really was no thinking involved - you're just trained, it's like a little dog, you're just trying to get to the end zone. We'll say there was no doubt, but who knows.

      • Notre Dame Coach Charlie Weis: I'm not going to feel miserable about this win, I promise you. You want to be miserable, fine. I'm going to be happy. Any time you win a game like that - we're very fortunate to walk out of there with scoring a touchdown inside of 30 seconds to go with no timeouts left. Sign me up.

      • UCLA Coach Karl Dorrell: We would have loved to have finish the game on offense, no question about that. We made them exhaust all their timeouts but we didn't finish with the first down. We needed one first down to finish the game and we didn't do that.
