Quotes[edit | edit source]

"They thought they could come in here and shove the ball down our throats," senior linebacker Scott Nicolas told the Palm Beach Post after the game. "Penn State thought the same thing. You're just not gonna do it, unless maybe you're an NFL team."

"These players will go down in history," Miami coach Howard Schellenberger said. "They've certainly taken a place among my memories. This is the biggest thing that's ever happened to me in football."
