Head coach Mike Gundy: "If you turn the ball over on the road and give up big plays, it's really hard to win. Much less, when you're playing a team that is number one in the nation on offense ... They made the big plays and we didn't."
Quarterback Clint Chelf: "There's going to be ups and downs in games, you've got to keep a level head and keep pushing throughout. Unfortunately, we didn't make enough plays today on offense ... We never rolled over. We've got a bunch of guys on the team that wanted to win that kept fighting, we just came up short."
