UH Coach Major Applewhite prepares team for Arizona

On facing Arizona and head coach Kevin Sumlin
“I’ve told our team that this is about us. It’s always about us; it’s about how we play; it’s about how we practice. If we want to play at a standard; practice at that standard.”

“This is not about playing a Power 5 team, or playing a Pac-12 team; that’s not what this is about.  It’s about Arizona coming into Houston and trying to take something that’s ours. They want to start their season off with a win now. They are going to try to come into our house, and take something that’s ours, and we’re not going to let them do that.”

“We’re going to focus on what we need to do from now until game time to get prepared to win on Saturday.”
