" Before every football game this season, two of the Daily foot-
ball writers will take the weekend's matchup to the PlayStation 2.
" Play of the game - Trailing 34-31, QB #3 puts an end to this
instant classic with a 30-yard pass to WR #2 over a lost CB #30.
" Players of the game - Michigan's WR #1 and Minnesota's WR
#2 were clearly the first and second best players in this game. WR
#1 set a school record with 239 yards on seven catches, while WR
#2 had four receptions for 153 yards. Both caught three touchdowns.
PRESS CONFERENCE QUOTES:
Minnesota coach Chris Burke:.
"To be honest, we should have won this thing in regulation. Why T #78 felt
the need to commit a clipping penalty when we were centering the ball to
kick the game-winning field goal, I'll never know."
"Yes, T #78 has been cut."
"QB #3 and WR #2 were spectacular. Well, QB #3 wasn't spectacular, I
guess. Eight-for-27 is pretty bad. But five touchdowns is good. We knew that
we could take advantage of Michigan CB #30 - I don't know why he jumped
five seconds before the last touchdown pass got near him, but I'm happy he
did. He must feel ridiculous."
Michigan coach Sharad Mattu:
"The only thing I have to say about the third-and-goal play in the final
overtime is this: I hope the next time we give the ball to RB #24 he at least
attempts to run forward."
"When WR #1 came to the sidelines after his third touchdown, I told him
that's the way an All-American plays. Sure, an All-American receiver has to
know how to play without the football, but what he does with the football is
a heck-of-a lot more important."
"This was a tough loss to take. We shut down their "great" running game
and put points up with ease. There's a devastated group in that locker room
right now, but we'll be back. I guarantee it."
