Post-game Quotes

Penn State Interim Head Coach Tom Bradley

On the team...
"I challenged the guys on the team to show a lot of character and resolve and they did. I challenged them before the game, we talked about the last two teams to win here were '78 and '08. I wanted to know how you're (the team) going to be remembered."

On his first win as a coach...
"This win isn't about me; it's about the players and this team. I don't think any team in the history of college football has been through so much in such a time period and to hang in there and fight their way through it is great. They have been great on the field, great in the classroom and I couldn't be prouder of them. "

On the Ohio State crowd...
"You have to take your hat off to them and I did walking off the field after warm-ups when they stood up and cheered us. That was first class. This is a first class group and university at Ohio State."

On the defense defending Braxton Miller...
"He is difficult to contain. One thing that has helped us is that we have seen a couple running quarterbacks in the last few weeks. We had an advantage there; this wasn't the first time we were preparing for a running quarterback. He is very shifty and quick. Everybody we have played so far is a different style of runner and he is very elusive."

Kicker Anthony Fera

On his field goal at the end of the first half...
"It was big. It put us up by six instead of just three. It proved to make a difference at the end when they needed a touchdown instead of just a field goal."

On having a chance to play in the Big Ten Championship Game...
"It's awesome for us. Wisconsin is a great team. We're going to go back and look at the film and get ready for them."

Safety Drew Astorino

On the team's mentality coming into today...
"You never want to go on a two-game losing streak. We had a little adversity coming into today and had to come into a tough road environment. We're building every day and every game."

On having a chance to play in the Big Ten Championship Game...
"Next week is a big game for us. Not very many teams come in here and win. We're proud of ourselves but we've still got more work to do."

Quarterback Matthew McGloin

On the team's mindset coming into today...
"We wanted to build an early lead. We did that and were able to score 20 points in the first half. This is a tough environment to play in, and it's important to get off to a strong start in these kind of places."

Running back Stephfon Green

On his season...
"I've just been trying to take advantage of my opportunities. I'm learning from my mistakes, and I'm always trying to get better."

On the team's last two weeks...
"To have a shot at the Big Ten championship means a lot. We're going to go into Madison with our heads on straight and try and take care of our business."
