"They're real competitive. We've got to give it all we have and leave it all on the field," she said Wednesday afternoon. "Hopefully we'll keep going with the momentum."

She explained that she wears Under Armour to stay warm.

"When my throat starts hurting, I chew gum … it really does help," she said.
