"This was their bowl game, playing Kansas." Kansas sophomore quarterback Kale Pick said. "They came out here played hard and played well. We knew they were going to come out here and play their hearts out. This is big time for them. They were the better team today.”
"You have to hope that you score more than three points, not to take away from North Dakota State, they played well, played well on defense, and they made plays when they had to make them." Kansas head coach Turner Gill said. "We got inside the red zone and were not able to execute when we got down there so they did a good job.”
“We came in to the game feeling like we have a heck of a shot to win the game and that’s not being arrogant." North Dakota State head coach Craig Bohl said. "You know, we thought the situation was right, we have had good practices. The guys have worked extremely hard and we knew Kansas was in a little bit of a transition. So, it was a good win for us, but we can’t get too high. We have got to get ready for next week."
