Colvin suffered a concussion in the Sooners' second game of the season and missed a game, then left Oklahoma's 41-12 loss at Baylor in early November with a shoulder injury, causing him to miss a second full game the next week.

He returned to action a week later at Kansas State, where he didn't start because of the nagging injury, but came off the bench in the second half to guard Tyler Lockett.

Lockett caught six passes for 206 yards and three touchdowns in the first half, and caught another six after halftime, but didn't score again with Colvin covering him.

The shoulder injury — and turf toe — continued to bother Colvin all season, but he played through it, starting both the season finale at Oklahoma State and the Sugar Bowl.

Colvin was a first-team All-Big 12 selection his last two years at Oklahoma, and finished his career with 234 tackles, five interceptions and 23 pass breakups.
