Dontre Wilson, freshman running back
On Ohio State’s overall play
“I think we were closer to a complete game. The defense stepped up tremendously. We shut them out most of the game. We played a great game.”

On scoring his first career touchdown and moving on from his fumble last week
“When I saw the endzone I had to get there. I think about it [fumbling last week] all the time. I wish I had that play back, but you have to move on and keep playing. I’m way faster than a lot of people. Now, I have to go out and prove it.”

Ryan Shazier, junior linebacker
On teammates Bradley Roby and Christian Bryant returning to game action
“I feel like it was noticeable because it seemed like they didn’t want to throw the ball in their direction. Having guys like Christian [Bryant] and Bradley [Roby] back is like a security blanket. We know exactly what they can do and that they’re going to do it.”

On the aggressiveness of the Ohio State defense
“I felt aggressive last week because I trust all the guys on our defense. I can be the same, aggressive player regardless of who is playing behind me. It’s frustrating we didn’t get the shutout today. Every defense wants to hold the other team to zero points, but we did what we had to do.”

Curtis Grant, junior linebacker
On improving from last week
“This whole week we’ve just been working on eliminating the little mistakes which turn into big mistakes. We came out and had a great practice this week.”

On being a member of the Buckeye defense
“I’m not comfortable at all. Playing in this defense you can’t be comfortable. I want to get better. It comes along with playing alongside these guys. I have to be better.”

Corey Brown, senior wide receiver
On his acrobatic catch
“Coach [Urban] Meyer and Coach [Tom] Herman did a good job of play calling. The offensive line held their blocks and Kenny Guiton threw a nice ball.”

On confidence level with Kenny Guiton
“He is one of the leaders of our team. Everyone on the team knows what we are getting when he comes into the game, a lot of confidence and a lot of swagger. When Kenny is out there, nobody is worried at all.”

Andrew Norwell, senior offensive lineman
On the sense of urgency when Braxton Miller got hurt
“I do not really think about that kind of stuff. I protect Kenny the same way I protect Braxton. Our mentality is to just move on to the next play.”

On Corey Linsley’s play
“He played really well. The coaches called him out for his play. He played a lot and did a good job today.”

Michael Bennett, junior defensive lineman
On his progression as a player
“I try to never be content. I am always trying to become a better player. There is still a lot of stuff I need to get better at.”

Kenny Guiton, senior quarterback
On his play
“I just do my best to let my voice be heard and impact this team in a positive way.”

On leadership
“I take pride in the fact the offense almost does not skip a beat when I come into the game. I just do my best to be a leader in that way. I let the team know everything is going to be okay.”

On playing a complete game
“I started out really strong. We got on the scoreboard right away and that was positive for the team. I think I could have played a lot better in the second half, but that is just what I’ll have to take away from this game and improve on.”
