WASHINGTON HEAD COACH Tyrone Willingham
On Their First Pac-10 Win
"We did a wonderful job today. The players did an excellent, excellent job. It's been a long time coming. We've been knocking at the door, and all we wanted was to get it done. The defense stood up. For the most part they did a hell of a job. Our offense was, for the most part, really aggressive."

On The Injuries
"Nate Williams came out with a hamstring that's been bothering him. We had a hit to Chad Macklin in the back, and he has some spasms but he should be all right. And a couple of bruises."

On Running Back Louis Rankin
"It was an excellent job by him. Also an excellent job by the offensive line."

On The Defense
"They [the defense] played. They played. They tried to keep people off balance like we normally do, but they made plays. They played with a lot of confidence."

QUARTERBACK Jake Locker
On Running Back Louis Rankin
"Louis is a special back. He's done that all year, and I think he had a breakout game today. That's what he's capable of doing. He ran hard, he stuck his nose in there and took what the defense gave him. And that opens up the whole offense when he does something like that."

On The Win
"I think we found a way to win in the end. It wasn't the prettiest game we played. We missed a couple opportunities, we had it in the red zone a couple times and didn't get touchdowns. That's stuff we've got to take advantage of. We've been waiting a couple weeks for that, and now we've got to take that momentum and carry it into the next couple of weeks. Everybody's really excited about the win today. Obviously, it's been a long time coming."

RUNNING BACK Louis Rankin
On His Big Day
"The line did really good, we did everything really good upfront and the whole offense opened up. I think we played good as an offense and they just called my number a lot, so that made me get a lot of yards."

On The Defense Getting His Fumble Back
"It took a lot of pressure off me, because I was thinking `man I could've cost us the game right there,' but they stepped up and got it back for me."

On How He Feels
"I didn't realize it at all, and I feel really good. Coach said I'll probably be a little sore tomorrow, but right now I feel really good."
