BYU linebacker Uona Kaveinga on SJSU passing so much:

"You like to play against the run and you take pride in stopping the run. But to be a great defense, you have to play against everything, run and pass. I mean, this is a football game. They run and throw the ball. We will just try our best to run to the ball and execute the defensive play calls that are called."

BYU QB Riley Nelson on the need to score quickly vs. SJSU:

"No question -- with the way they throw the ball around and how potent their offense has been, if we can play well from the get-go and put up a touchdown or two, that first quarter, it will really set the tone for the game."

Nelson on SJSU's ability to get sacks with superstar Travis Johnson:

"I hope to do what USU did, and that's to get the ball out of my hands quickly and not allow them to get into their pass rush to a groove where they are feeling the pass rush is working."

BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall on whether SJSU will max protect like OSU did and try to beat BYU with its athletes downfield:

"They have a little bit of that. They did some against us a year ago. If they did, they would change the type of plays that they did. I am not sure if they think they need to do that against us. They have had enough success that maybe they think their normal stuff will work. They are very good at it. Whether they concede that they have to do something like that, I don't know. We have worked on it hard since Oregon State, so hopefully they are ready."

Mendenhall on what the defense must do Saturday to be successful:
