First up is Texas coach Mack Brown:
Brown said he and his coaches are game-planning as they normally would for their game against OU this weekend, but are paying special attention to Sooners LB Travis Lewis and the rest of the standout OU linebacking corps.
"It's a dream to play in this game and it's a dream to coach in the game," Brown said, referring to the Red River Rivalry.
Brown said he and OU coach Bob Stoops have a good relationship and get along fine.
Brown said he thinks Sooners QB Landry Jones should be the leading Heisman Trophy candidate.
Next up is Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops:
On a team playing for the BCS national championship with a loss on their schedule, Stoops said "anything is possible."
Stoops said he gets along fine with Mack Brown but said the two do not have many opportunities to talk. He said is is "more business" than anything.
On the Red River Rivalry, Stoops said it is another game and that the Sooners have had big games like this already this year. "It's the next one," he said.
Next up is Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville:
Tuberville said the Red Raiders would be interested in playing Texas A&M in non-conference in the years to come.
"We're making progress. I don't know if we've made it fast enough," Tuberville said of his young team's improvement on the year. "We just need to have a little luck on our side."
On Texas A&M, Tech's opponent Saturday, Tuberville said the teams are similar in that neither has been able to play complete games through four quarters.
Tuberville said he thinks Tech RB Eric Stephens can hit the 1,000 rushing yard mark this season if he continues playing the way he is.
Next up is Baylor coach Art Briles:
Briles said the team put film of Iowa State on the screen to get rid of the memory of Saturday's loss to Kansas State.
On not being able to run the ball well against K-State, Briles said his team would increase its emphasis on getting the ground game going. He said they attempted to do so on Saturday but just weren't able to.
Briles said QB Robert Griffin III was always a "football-first" athlete.
