Post-game video — Chris Polk

Simply put, Chris Polk turned in one of the better games by a UW running back in the school’s long history — 143 rushing, 100 receiving, five touchdowns.

Here’s some of what he said later, with video at the bottom:

On his game: “My teammates, after the performance we had at Stanford, they really came back and battled. Our linemen and receivers blocking downfield. I’m actually very blessed to be in the game at thoses time. Anyone could have scored. They executed to perfection.”

On the slow start: “I think we got caught up in our emotions. We got a little chippy, and didn’t play our style of football. But our coaches had to rally us and settle us down, and we started rolling after that.”

On scoring five TDs: “It doesn’t mean nothing if it doesn’t come with a win. I didn’t even know I scored that much or I did all those things today. The win, that means the most to me.”

On being bowl eligible: “That means a lot, but we still have a lot of football left. There’s still a lot of areas we could get better at. We still didn’t play our best game. We still have to keep grinding. It’s a great thing, but it’s not what we look forward to. It’s not like our main objective.”

On carrying 34 times: “I love that. I’ll do whatever it takes to have our team win. If I could call it, I would want the ball every play. But we have other athletes out there, other running backs and receivers, without them blocking, none of those yards are happening.”

On breaking Napoleon Kaufman’s record for 100-yard games: “That’s a great feeling, but that’s not the record I want. I have to still work at that.”

On the record he wants: “Most rushing yards.”

On Kaufman’s career record and knowing who he is: “Yeah, I know that name. I know that name a lot. I’m still behind him right now. Hopefully, if God’s willing, I’ll be blessed to be in front of him. But whatever happens, happens. I’m fine with whatever.”

On chances of coming back next year: “Yeah, I would consider coming back, because I really don’t want to leave for the NFL until I really felt I was the best one that ever did it here. I want to really perfect my craft and go in with no negatives in my game. Until I’ve felt I’ve felt I’ve done that, I’ll remain in college.”
