Colvin's pick came when he was blitzing; Tech quarterback Seth Doege, threw the ball, Colvin jumped into the air to deflect it, but caught it instead.

Later, he tipped a pass that safety Javon Harris intercepted and returned for a touchdown.

“(Harris is) always in the right place at the right time,” Colvin said. “Your preparation allows you to do things and I feel like that's what helps him make a lot of plays.”


Oklahoma junior receiver Kenny Stills is from California, so he didn't have much knowledge of the OU-Texas game and all its tradition before his freshman season.

After two years with the Sooners, Stills said he doesn't “have any hatred” for Texas. But one thing about the Lone Star State that does bother him? Its claim to host the best high school football.

“I'm a California kid; the only thing that kinda bothers me is them talking about who has the best high school football, or where the best players come from,” he said.

Stills has played well in his two previous Red River games. In 2010, he caught five passes for 78 yards and a touchdown. Last season, he caught two touchdowns.


Co-offensive coordinator Josh Heupel on Jones, who can become part of a select group of OU quarterbacks to be 3-0 as starters against Texas:

“His performance in the Cotton Bowl isn't what gives me confidence in him or the football team. ... His ability to play in big games and be resilient and come back and keep attacking and be decisive … the player he is is why I have a lot of confidence in him.”
