From Auburn University media relations:

RB Onterrio McCalebb

On today's game...

"I thought we played well. We fought until the end, and came out with a win."

On his fourth career 100-yard game...

"Coach Loeffler called great plays. The offensive line and wide receivers blocked their tails off."

On his 27-yard run...

"The offensive line ran to the left and I just followed Jay Prosch. Jay is a heck of a blocker. He took out the man in front of me and I was able to score."

On getting the first win of the season...

"I think it is big, because it gives us lots of momentum heading into LSU next weekend."

 

RB Tre Mason

On today's game...

"We played a really good team today. We knew that they were going to fight until the end. We knew we had to pull together and fight until the end with them. I think we got the job done today."

On the team's rushing efforts...

"As an offense, we feel like no one can stop us in the redzone. Hopefully we can get this train going and get into the endzone."

On the team getting its first win of the season...

"It is a big win, but we are going to right back to work. We have to prepare for a tough game next week, but it is nice to get the first win of the season under our belts."

 

K Cody Parkey

On his game-winning field goal...

"Honestly it felt like practice. The offense did a great job getting some yards on the first play of the drive. It was an easy kick for me. It was right down the middle. It couldn't have gone any better."

On the team's first win...

"It is huge. We knew we couldn't leave here with a loss. It was big for us to get the win, no matter how it looked."

 

QB Kiehl Frazier

On today's game...

"It was just good to go out there and get a win. We had two tough losses to start the year, so it is good to get a win heading into the LSU game."

On the team's first win...

"We have a lot of young guys on this team, so hopefully we can keep this feeling going."

On his 33-yard touchdown reception...

"It was a great play call. Quan (Bray) made a great play, even though he had to scramble a little bit. It worked like we thought it would."

 

DE Corey Lemonier

On today's game...

"It's great to have our first win. Louisiana-Monroe came out and fought hard but we fought harder. We are going to look at our mistakes this week and prepare for LSU."

On overtime defense...

"We really gutted up when it came down to it. I'm proud of the way we played, I'm proud of all of my teammates."

On his third-quarter field goal block...

"The guy blocking me went to Kris (Frost) and so I just came through clean."

 

DT Angelo Blackson

On blocking field goal in overtime...

"I got a hand on it, I got a piece of it. Coach said it was going to come down to the end of the game, maybe a field goal. I just wanted to get pressure and get my hands up."

On blocking two field goals so far this season...

"I'm just doing my job. I try to get to the line and get my hands up."


LB Daren Bates

On today's game...

"Everybody played hard. We tried to keep our intensity up. They played us hard but we matched them."

On leading team in tackles...

"I think I played alright, but it's a team game. The offense and the defense have to come out and perform together to win games."
