He Said It: 

Defensive coordinator Jim Nance on last week’s game against Northwest:
“We created turnovers, which is good. I believe that we played good enough to win but we must capitalize on turnovers. We also must make sure that we play fast and physical football throughout the game.”

Nance on Heights: “We have to stop their high-powered running game. They have very talented players in their backfield. We must play physical and fast if we hope to contain their multi-talented fullback. If we do that, it should result in a win.”
