Coach Rick Neuheisel on the cold weather: "The players didn't seem to mind. They battled. Very pleased with all of the work. The defense had a very good day. Got to just keep getting better. The elements were a little different today so that changes things. Came out, tried to do a little of everything instead of just focusing on one portion of the plan in terms of situations. Transitioning from situation to situation made us a little rougher but that's all part of it. Trying to get better every day and watching all the competition unfold."
