Los Angeles -- The Oregon Ducks continue to prepare for the 98th Annual Rose Bowl and Head Coach Chip Kelly has been quoted.

On treating today's practice differently because it being bowl week...

"We're not treating practice any different. Today was like a Wednesday in our schedule. We treated it like we normally treat a Wednesday and went hard at it."

On giving the team advice for Lawry's Beef Bowl...

"I didn't tell them to go easy. Just told them to enjoy themselves and just have fun."

On Mark Asper's Heimlich save and its effect on the team...

I did not see it happen, just heard about it afterwards. From where I was sitting, it wasn't apparent that something was going on. No one near me was aware of what was going on. I just heard about it after the fact. It didn't affect the team (at practice) but when I found out it was Mark who did it, it doesn't surprise me. One of the many feathers in his hat."
