Texas head coach Mack Brown
"[TCU] may be the best run defense in our league. It's going to be a running offense against a run-stopping defense. Their numbers are phenomenal. They held SMU to 16 yards rushing. They held Kansas to 46 yards rushing. They held Oklahoma State, who can run the ball well, to 95 yards rushing.
"This matchup is a great time for us because we talked about who we wanted to be and we were that team against Oklahoma. Now we have to see if we can do it again. They know we're going to run it and they're going to try to stop it. Last year they did, we had 86 yards rushing and they had 277 yards rushing.
"They have a great defense. I think Gary Patterson does it as well as anyone else in the country and it has been that way every year. Their question marks have been on offense, but have never been on defense."

We have our hands full with a very talented Texas team. Coach (Mack) Brown is always complimentary of us, but the bottom line is they've been playing really well, getting their confidence back and doing the things they need to do. We have to find a way to win. We've got to do a better job on offense in the first half. Obviously, we need to start faster to win ball games and then you have to finish.

I think they're just inconsistent at times. That can really hurt you. With their defense playing so good, they've been in a lot of ball games but just haven't been able to produce on offense. I think they're steadily trying to find ways to turn that around. At times they look good, at times they don't. We just have to make sure and prepare for their best. We know we're going to get it. I know they're definitely going to bring it this week.
TCU safety Elisha Olabode on Texas' talent
"They're an all around good team. Good receivers, great running backs, a great o-line and good quarterback play. They're not the same Texas team people thought they were. They're fast. They're physical. They're starting to get their swag back."

That definitely fuels our fire. It was on Thanksgiving, at our house. We're very motivated to go out there and get a win. It's the next conference opponent. This is their second year in our conference. We're excited to go up there. They got that new stadium, so none of us have played up there yet.
TCU safety Sam Carter on what makes Texas' offense dangerous
"Everything. They receivers are great. The running backs are running hard. Case (McCoy) is playing with the most confidence than probably any other quarterback in the Big 12 right now."
