QUOTES OF THE DAY
"They come in with the mind-set that you can't stop the run on them. We like our chances. But we have to stop the run. If we don't, we won't win the game. That's what it boils down to." -- Vanderbilt linebacker John Stokes on the UConn matchup (Source: The Tennessean)
"I think the SEC is probably the No. 1 conference out there. Just playing a team from the conference is a tremendous challenge. We're concentrating on putting another win in the bank, but I think our non-conference schedules are pretty demanding. We've upgraded each year, and having a Big 10 and SEC team says a lot about the type of schedule we've put together." -- UConn coach Randy Edsall on facing an SEC team (Source: Journal Register News Service)
