Montgomery…

on TU’s win over Memphis:  

“Very proud of our football team. I thought we went into a tough environment. I thought out guys, even though, you know, we have fought this injury bug here for a little while, guys have stepped up and continued to play well. I think our leadership is really, got a good control of our locker room having us prepared and getting us ready. Our assistant coaches, from a schematic standpoint, have done a good job as far as getting guys in the right places at the right time, and those guys are executing those game plans.”

on being bowl eligible and possibly clinching a division title:

"It's great to have meaningful football games here late, and there's a lot of meaning surrounding these last few games. So, we train really hard all year long. We know we're going to get any extra one, but now it's focused in on the task at hand and finish this season up the way we started at the first of the year talking about."
