During Oklahoma State's first drive of the second quarter Colvin sacked OSU quarterback Clint Chelf for a four-yard loss. The cornerback added a second sack late in the third quarter for a loss of 10 yards.
“Colvin Island” is the nickname given to the area of the defensive backfield Colvin defends during games.
“I don't know if sacks goes along with Colvin Island but if it does it does,” Colvin said.
This was a crazy momentum-shifting game. How do you handle the swings?
You just have to take it as they come. You just got to keep playing. It's a rivalry game so anything can happen and we knew that we were going to get their best shot and they were going to get ours.
Is this the kind of game where you just don't look at the scoreboard because of that swing?
It really is when you realize you still have a chance to win the game, you just don't look at the score because anything can happen like you guys saw today. They were up a lot of the game and we came back at the end.
When you knew that the offense had the ball and the chance to win it, did you feel pretty good after the last two weeks and what they've been doing?
Honestly, I was 100 percent sure we were going to win that game. I was that sure in the offense.
Being a guy from Oklahoma, where does this rank in your memory?
It's definitely one or two. It's probably one. I've never really been in that tight of a game and go in overtime like that and come out like that.
