Oklahoma State linebacker Caleb Lavey, who recorded his first career interception, sat down with The Oklahoman after the Cowboys' 38-26 victory over Texas.

How did it feel to get your first-career interception in such a key game in your home state?

It was really exciting. Every turnover is huge. I'm glad I got my first one, especially down here in Texas. It was a lot of fun. I think everybody dreams about making a big play or two down in Austin, in front of the big lights.

What did you see on that interception play?

I was dropped back in coverage and read the quarterbacks' eyes. Luckily, I got a hand on it. I give credit to the gloves for bringing that sucker in.

What does winning at Texas in back-to-back seasons mean to the OSU program?

It was a big deal for all of us players. Texas is a good football team. They're always a good program. They can beat anybody on any given day. So it was a huge deal for us to come down here and beat them. It doesn't mean anything to be 6-0 right now. We've just got to keep winning, keep pushing each other in practice and just try to be a better football team.
