Washington quarterback Cyler Miles, back from a concussion, was 13 of 19 for 206 yards and two touchdowns with two fumbles in the Huskies’ 38-23 victory at Colorado on Saturday. Here’s what Miles, a sophomore from Centennial, Colo., said after the game:

(On the importance of playing well on the road) “It was very important. It was real special to me because I used to grow up coming to CU games. Just to be able to be in the stadium and experience it as a player is kind of like a dream come true. At the same time, I tried to just calm my mind before the game and do my job. I’d be lying to you if I said there weren’t butterflies. I mean, this is my first time playing in front of a lot of my family. At the same time before the game I realized I had to calm my mind and I knew we’d be fine if I just did my job and trust my guards.”

(on Shaq Thompson) “He’s a ball player. Y’all know that. Everybody knows that. Shaq’s going to do his thing no matter where you put him at. I’m glad to have him on my side. Anywhere he is on the field I believe he’s going to make plays.”

(on first-half struggles) “It was a few fumbles. That’s really it. We just have to take care of the ball better and focus up. I need to get better at that. My dad always told me, ‘Stop carrying it like a loaf of bread.’ I need to just tuck it and practice reps.”

(on Coach Petersen’s thoughts after the game) “Same thing. We have to take care of the ball better. We are hurting ourselves. I think we had two red zone fumbles and one almost in the red zone so obviously that’s not acceptable at all.”

(on his performance) “I thought I did some good things. I thought I definitely need to take care of the ball. I thought I did a decent job and have a lot to work on like ball security. I could’ve hung in there a couple more times but I thought it was OK.”
