receiving game. He is with Lauren Mcclain. Lauren: All right, Matt, tough loss but a bright spot. 89 yards and a touchdown late in the third.

What is the state of the football program now?>>I think we are determined to prove that we were better than we showed today. We felt pretty bad for ourselves and it wasn’t fun. We are determined to focus on Toledo and do all we can to beat them. Lauren: Your head coach Kalani stake walked off the field, he was still clapping, he thanked the fans for being here. You went into the locker room. I’m sure it wasn’t all happiness. What was his message?>>The same thing. He is always says we have fans, parents, family members flying out to see us so just when it is game time you have to be focused on game time. When it is family time, you have to be focused on family. You can’t let it hurt the rest of your weekend.
