On getting over the disappointment of not reaching the Rose Bowl...

"We're over it. That's water under the bridge, it's done, it's over. We're excited for the Outback Bowl. We feel the opponent we're playing against is as good as anyone in the country. It'll be a marquee game, a marquee matchup, it's going to be a great opportunity for us."
