Alex Grinch: "It's going to be a great challenge"

"They put you in constant conflict," USC defensive coordinator Alex Grinch said of Tulane's offense. "Most of their running game includes the RPO aspect of things, the ability to throw the ball down the field. So the easy answer is to try to put more hats on [Spears]. That's hard to do [with] being solid in the passing game, too."

Caleb Williams, will be at the Cotton Bowl

On hold was the presence of its star in the Cotton Bowl, but USC quarterback Caleb Williams , will be tested in the Cotton Bowl game despite suffering what appeared to be a serious hamstring injury several weeks ago.


His stay with the team is an obvious boost for the Trojans' offense, which benefits greatly from both Heisman-winning talent and balanced quarterback leadership.

Lincoln Riley: "It's going to be a very important matchup"

"It certainly would have been a much bigger challenge maybe in a normal game week or in a normal seven-day window, especially when you're playing really good defense like we were getting ready to play," Riley said. "I think our guys have tried to [take] advantage of the time to try to create some continuity here over the last month. And as is the case with every game, it's going to be a very, very important matchup."

Willie Fritz: "We're proud to represent New Orleans"

"Obviously it's a tremendous challenge to play a team like USC. We're proud to represent our conference, our university and New Orleans".
