Safety Kurt Coleman (Ohio State): "We beat Oregon in the Rose Bowl my senior year, but my favorite moment was beating Michigan that year and having two interceptions in the game. Beating Michigan four years in a row was pretty special."

Place-kicker Alex Henery (Nebraska): "When I was a sophomore, I hit a (school-record) 57-yard field goal to give us the lead against Colorado, then (Cornhuskers defensive tackle Ndamukong) Suh scored on an interception return to clinch it for us. It was pretty funny to watch Suh's TD. He kneed their quarterback (Cody Hawkins) out of the way, then ran over him."

Linebacker DeMeco Ryans (Alabama): "The last game of my college career was pretty special. We beat Texas Tech in the Cotton Bowl and that was the year their offense was supposed to be unstoppable. We held them to something like 10 points and I was named Defensive MVP of the game. We lost to Auburn all four years, so I've tried to erase that from my memory."
