SAN JOSE, Calif. -
Utah State Head Coach Gary Andersen
"Tremendous victory against a good football team. I've got a ton of respect, like I've said all along for their coaching staff, their players. It (the game) went back and forth and we made big play after big play, which you have to do on the road to be able to win. I'm extremely proud of these kids the way they fought, jumped out early."
"It was a team effort. The offense was on fire, gets 49 points, the defense gets 13 sacks. I couldn't be prouder of these kids."
On the defense getting 13 QB sacks:
"They were the ones (Defensive Coordinator Dave Aranda and defensive coaching staff) that came up with the game plan. Obviously they executed it extremely well."
On not allowing a QB sack:
"I thought they did a nice job (offensive line). At times we had to double team #43 (Travis Johnson), I mean you have too, he's a tremendous football player. You gotta chip him, you gotta get him off of his rhythm."
On the offensive production:
"I think they absolutely did play their best game."
On QB Chuckie Keeton rebounding from a poor game last week:
"It doesn't surprise me. I said to him early in the week I thought you were going to answer the bell this week and he just kind of looked at me and winked. That's Chuckie. He expects himself to play at a high level every single week it doesn't matter who he's playing against. We could be playing the Pittsburgh Steelers and he'd expect himself to play at a high level."
On scoring the first two TDs of the second half:
"Big. I think that was a real big turning point in the football game without question. For us to be able to get the ball and score. Stop them. Get the ball and score it took us back to where we were in the second quarter."
What was said during halftime:
"Real simple. San Jose is not going to quit. You're going to get their best shot snap in and snap out. It's a good offense, it's a good defense. You can't turn the ball over. The message was to keep playing because it's never over especially against a very, very good offensive football team."
