Fresno State Head Coach Pat Hill:
"Well, this was really a great team effort by a great bunch of young men. I couldn't be prouder of a team. They have been so resilient all season long. That's the story of this team. No matter the odds, no matter who got hurt, who took their place or who's on the field, they just played. They don't get caught up in worrying about a lot of those kinds of things."
"We've won seven games and are looking for eight. To go 8-4 would be a great accomplishment for them team after a 4-8 season in 2006. We have one more in Las Cruces (vs. New Mexico State) next week and they've had two weeks to prepare. That will be a tough game."
"This is a big win for our program and another good win for the WAC. The WAC is proving to be a very good football league. When you look at what Hawaii and Boise State have done it great for our league. We are in the upper echelon and right there. We have a great opportunity to go to a bowl game for the eighth time in nine years. That would be a great accomplishment for this team."
"This story of this team needs to be told and after all of the injuries and other things we've gone through, this is a resilient team. I'm so proud of this senior class. They deserved to go out the way that they did today. This win was for them."
"Kansas State had a lot of great athletes. You could see that. They beat a very good Texas team this season. They are a big-time program from a big-tome conference. This was a good win for the Bulldogs."
Kansas State Ron Prince:
"They have a terrific quarterback (Tom Brandstater) and I don't want to take anything away from that. It didn't matter how our defense played, he was going to find a place to throw the ball. He's a real pro. I have a lot of respect for a good quarterback and he is definitely a good quarterback. We got beat by a good quarterback today."
"I have a lot of admiration for the way they [Fresno State] play and it's something we aspire to. We were able to run the ball effectively in the first quarter and they took that away from us."
"Unfortunately this team is done. Now we have to talk about this team in the past tense."
"My challenge is finding my guys like Jordy Nelson."
Kansas State Receiver Jordy Nelson:
"They kept making plays, putting points up on the board and we didn't. That puts the defense in a bad position."
"Fresno State is a great team and they played a great game."
