QUARTERBACK Nick Florence
(on A&M's long run) "It was definitely a momentum swing. We still had chances to make things happen as an offense. We didn't finish and we hurt ourselves a lot. We bounced back and got in the red zone again but didn't do anything with it. I didn't play very well but that's the way it goes. We have to work on finishing and moving the ball well. We had a lot of penalties but we still have to finish."
SAFETY Jordan Lake
"It hurts. As a senior, you want to go out leaving your legacy and go to a bowl game. For the seniors, it's devastating that we can't do that. A&M did a really good job up front. They came out and controlled the line of scrimmage. We didn't play very well. We had missed assignments and missed hits."
HEAD COACH Art Briles
"I feel like this was my fault. We wanted our seniors to go out and have the chance to play in a bowl game. I think they have done everything we have asked them to do since we stepped off the field at Texas Tech last year. To do that says a lot about them. I apologize to them for not letting them fulfill that dream. They put a lot of sweat, effort and good attitudes into Baylor football and the university. They should have never had the long run. We should have put points on the board. When you get down there, you have to score. I don't know what patience is. I don't feel like we're building a program. I feel like we're fighting our tails off to make Baylor football respectable. To me, that's not buidling; that's doing what you're supposed to do. We want to put a team on the field that represents the university the best we can."
