Brigham Young Cougars head coach Kalani Sitake celebrates with Brigham Young Cougars linebacker Butch Pau'u (38) after the Cougars forced a turnover against the Utah Utes during an NCAA football game in Salt Lake City on Saturday, Sept. 10, 2016. Utah leads rival BYU 14-13 at halftime.

On the heels of the BYU Cougars' one-point loss to the Utah Utes on Saturday night at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Cougar head coach Kalani Sitake and a few players met with media Monday.

During Sitake’s 12-minute media session, he primarily discussed the mood of his team after the loss, the decision to try a two-point conversion at the end of the game and what it will be like during the first half this weekend against UCLA without safety Kai Nacua, who was suspended after getting called for targeting during the third quarter against the Utes.

“The guys are ready to go,” Sitake said about the upcoming game. “They made the transition. Whenever you’re coming off a loss, especially like that, you want to get to work, and these guys have made the transition, and we’re on to game week now.”
