I don't want to get too emotional before the game, just because I want to be focused on Texas Tech. But once the whistle's blown and the game's over, I'm definitely going to take my time getting back to the locker room, just kind of soak in all the fans.

The Saturdays I've spent at Boone Pickens Stadium, I wouldn't trade for anything. Growing up as a kid, if I had one wish, it would be to play here. Not only have I gotten a chance to be here, but I've played here, I've contributed. I've got such a loyal fan base and so much love from all the fans that so many people in this world don't get to experience.

For the probably 30 seconds to a minute I can just stand there and soak it all in, I'll try to, and hopefully I won't lose it too bad.
