I had to run through No. 8 (Daytawion Lowe) and I remember him coming down and another guy to the left. And I was able to run through some trash and get in the end zone.

I have no idea (who got to me first in the celebration). Somebody grabbed me from behind and then just everybody came in. (When I saw Kenny Stills), he was just telling me how much he loved me, and I told him I loved him, too. Thanked him for his support and being there for me.

Just praises to the Lord, he's blessed me so much. And it was great, just being able to celebrate with my teammates, it was truly a once in a lifetime experience.

Yeah, of course (it was the highlight of my career). There's been so many plays this year overall, but to finish Bedlam, that's a great experience. In front of this crowd, they stayed until the end. They had our back even though we were down by however much we were down by. We came back and faced adversity, and I'm appreciative of them being there the whole time and riding with us.

In high school I had a few of those (walk-off touchdowns), we scored a lot of points. So I've had one of those before, but not quite like this one.

Every senior I saw, I just said that was for ya'll. There's no other way to send them out than with a victory, especially against Oklahoma State, especially for the last home game.
