Syracuse coach Dino Babers on saying good-bye to his seniors Saturday: "They're going to be the cornerstone of what we're going to get done in the future. There's no doubt we're going to win here. But the 2017 class should get credit for that. I hope when these young men come back in 2018, 2019 and 2020 when things are different, the people in the community give them the due they deserve."

Asked Louisville coach Bobby Petrino whether Lamar Jackson deserves to be in New York for the Heisman ceremony: "I think he does for sure. I can't imagine there's a better player in the country than Lamar Jackson, his ability to throw the football, run the football. I know we had our struggles, but it wasn't his play. He was playing great and doing everything he could."

Urban Meyer said today in his press conference that the rivalry game against Michigan is not a "one week deal." Rather that he and his coaches have been preparing for this game all year. "We're not just starting our film study for the week," Meyer said. "That's been going on for a long time." When asked a similar question, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh stated that he and his staff have done much of the same because of the magnitude that this rivalry brings.

Minkah Fitzpatrick sizes up Auburn's offensive philosophy succinctly (and correctly): "They love to run the ball, run the ball, run the ball and then takes shots over the top." Alabama's star DB will play a big role in both run and pass defense in the Iron Bowl on Saturday.

It was easy to overlook Alabama's 56-0 beatdown of Mercer last Saturday, but it was an important game in terms of Dylan Moses gaining valuable experience as he takes over at inside linebacker for Shaun Dion Hamilton, who suffered a season-ending injury three weeks ago. The true freshman led the team with 11 tackles. "I think he did a good job," Saban said of Moses. "I really do. He was well prepared and played with confidence. ... He made a lot of plays in the game and played fast and hopefully that will carry over."
