On scoring a TD in five straight games:

“That's awesome. Just to be in the same conversation as (Deshaun Watson and Travis Etienne)  is really impressive, and I'm really thankful for it. I just gotta continue to do my thing, help this offense and this team any way that I can, and hopefully, some more records can be matched.”

On the game vs. Furman:

“We looked great, came out early, and really followed the momentum that we ended with last week, which we were really happy with. No. 5 played a great game today. I was so thankful to be in the backfield with him, he's just leading the way so well.  Really just taking over and silencing the outside noise.  I'm just excited to see what we are going to do in the future, but I'm really pleased with today.”

On riding momentum from this game and in the future:

“It takes making the big plays, we definitely left three or four big plays out there today that either stopped drives or did not allow us to continue that momentum.  But if we can just make those huge plays that you see and carry on drives, get the crowd rolling, get the energy up.  I think that is the next level for us,  Is to not beat ourselves one and two to make the big plays.”

On Ella Breese

“We prayed for the Breese family, we prayed for brian and Ella countless times today.  All of our thoughts and prayers go out to her. We just want to see a smile on her face and for her hopes to be high.  We love you, Ella, and we hope things are going well,”

On Uiagelelei’s confidence

“It's so unbelievable. It's crazy. It brings a smile to my face.  I'm just in the backfield, and I’ve got a first-row seat. I see it happening. He's just commanding everything. He's telling me what to do. He's getting the protection call.  Doing things on the fly and that's stuff I haven't seen yet.  So to be in the first row of D.J. starting to find it again and to be able to take us where we want to go is awesome. I can't wait for the rest of the season.
