Hayden Fry That was a beautiful victory on national TV. That just goes to show that you've got to have faith and believe. After we had two chances for chip shot field goals and we had passes intercepted, I said, 'Lord, if you let us get down there again we're going to run it.' He must have put his hand on our backs because I haven't seen such beautiful blocking like that in the second haIf in a long time.
