OU defensive back Aaron Colvin

You were back at safety today after a couple of weeks at corner. Did it feel like life was back to normal today?

“I love playing safety and corner, but sometimes it does take its toll. I try to get in the groove at a position, and sometimes when I go from the field side to the boundary, it's kind of hard to adjust. It's no excuse. I made a lot of mistakes today. I've just got to correct them.”

Is it an asset, to be able to play those different positions, in case someone does get hurt?

“I feel so. I take pride in playing safety and corner. I try to play both to the best of my ability. I try to make plays.”

How much did it help to have Jamell Fleming back at corner? He had six tackles, an interception and a fumble recovery in his return from knee surgery.

“That's one of our brothers. One of our brothers was back out there. We were all ready to out there and play. He's a playmaker. You see him out there making turnovers today. It was great to have him back.”

Texas A&M wound up with 25 points, but it was stuck on 10 forever. Was that satisfying, to hold down that talented of an offense for the majority of the game?

“It's a great feeling. We played great the first 48 minutes. The last quarter wasn't too great, but I feel like we played excellent against a great offense. That team was loaded, all around. You don't have one weak person on that side of the ball.”
