"It's a historic rivalry, and I've learned more and more about it being in college," Milroe said at his week Monday media availability. It's very exciting being part of a rivalry. We're excited for the challenge.

"It's just another opportunity for us to have fun. We get to play in front of our fans this weekend so we're excited for that. A lot of energy will be in the air with playing a great opponent and it's going to be a lot of fun this weekend so we're looking forward to the challenge."

Asked about the penalty and sack issues the offense has faced, Milroe was quick to reply. "I think the biggest thing is the mindset of approaching things one play at a time. Not losing focus, I think that's very key," he said.

" Not to get too high or get too low. You have to be in the same position all throughout the game, whether it's good or bad, I think that's very key, just to have the right mindset, the right approach," Milroe said. "Another thing too is just, mistakes happen. Mistakes happen. No matter who we are. We're not perfect. We're not perfect at all by any means, only one person in this world that was perfect is my Lord and Savior [Jesus Christ].

"We have to focus on that. The biggest thing too is just that everyone has mistakes, but we can all fix them and so that's very key. That's what we're focusing on. We all can get better so I think that's very key."
