Jim Donnan This game was good for college football. It was well-played and there was tremendous execution by both teams. In the end, Vince Young was the difference. There's no way you can describe how much pressure he puts on a defense. He was very effective in moving around in the pocket and finding the open guy. He made every play. -- Jim Donnan
