UDM H-COACH RAY McCALLUM: "There is a lot of excitement in that locker room.
I would say it was a good win and it was an important game for us to put 40 minutes
together. That was our goal after playing 24 good minutes at Cal [in the season opener]
and that helped us get ready for this game."
UDM CEN ELI HOLMAN: "After a loss like that at Cal, a good team comes back and
focus on the next game and that is what we did."
The 86-P scored by the Titans were the most by Detroit since getting 92-P at
Buffalo and 91-P at home vs Milwaukee in 2007.
The Calihan Hall crowd of 3,840 was the largest in recent years.
