Coach. [Cheers] [Chanting]>>All right. Here we go. [Cheers]>>That was awesome.>>You dream of these moments. Tell us how it feels?>>It feels great. I am excited to be around the fans and celebrate with them. It was a hard fought game. A lot of great players sticking with it. It is like we have been here before in over time. It is nice to have it at home. We have to review everything, but I am glad it worked out our way.>>You had the call down in the end zone it looked like he was out of bounds and they go to take the lead, take us through your thought process on that and how you gathered yourself together.>>It is nothing I did, the players, they believe and they gave us graft port. The — great effort. They had great energy. The fans gave them great energy too. The leadership on this team they have done an amazing job. I am glad to be part of it.>>Talk about your defense. You forced the game’s only turnover last week. You force threed tod– three today and you didn’t give any back on offense. How about this defense?>>I am so proud of them and the way they played the game. Proud of the coaches the things that they did as a dpe — defensive staff was amazing to watch. This is stuff we ran back in the day when I played. None of that was really that mind blowing to us. Blaine did his job. We know what it takes to play against them. Obviously there are great players they made great plays and fortunate we were able to get the win.>>A lot of folks talk about young quarterback you got to blitz them. You played a lot of coverage. Kie Tonga in the first half he was a man child out there.>>Time to make a play I thought they did it. Credit to usc they made adjustments they stuck with the run game. We kept them balanced. We like more in the run game rather than the air-raid. When you can do that to an air-raid game big things happen for you.>>You have had big wins on the road. This is the biggest against a team at home against p5 on national TV. This is what the doctor ordered, right? You didn’t hurt yourself in the celebration today?>>No. I was very careful. More screaming than jumping. Really happy. I am so excited for our fans. Being a fan myself, I am happy for the fans. I think they deserve this. Looking forward to next week.>>I asked Zach this, how do you make the quick turn. Back-to-back really emotional wins. How do you come off of that quick enough to face a good Washington team?>>We talked about this as a team and the things we wanted to do. [Cheers]>>Learning from last year and trying to create momentum. We were able to do that at home against a quality team that’s ranked and explosive. I am thankful we were able to place man coverage and lock some guys up. We gave them great plays but on offense we were able to score and March down the field. Glad that all worked out. All three were on point today.>>Let’s finish up. What has changed with this team after such a disappointing opener and you go on the road to beaten ten now you beat usc. Two games most of America didn’t give you a chance at back in June. What’s happened to the team since that first Thursday night?>>We are not really concerned with what people think about us and whether they think we are going to win or not. We are confident ourselves. We made mistakes in the first game. The only way we can do it is make sure we are ready to play every week. I am proud of these guys and I am leaning heavy on the leadership. Not just the seniors, the whole group, the whole team. Our pep squad. Everyone on this team as a role. Therrel lishing in all of it that’s why it worked out.>>For two weeks you stayed relatively healthy. Washington next week. How is the relative health. How about the players are they coming out?>>We will have to respond to it. But the goal is to work on our depth. We had guys playing in this game that had first time snaps last year and weren’t able to capitalize on it. They did today. We are growing as a group, growing as a team. Still got growing to go. I think from this we will celebrate and have fun go to church tomorrow and get ready for Washington next week.>>You knocked off usc. Congratulations. We will turn you back into the
