"It was a very exciting day, and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to study at Oxford," Rolle said at halftime of the Seminoles' 37-3 victory. "I will remember today for a lifetime." He finished the interview in Birmingham around 6 p.m. EST. After learning of the honor, he boarded a private plane to catch up with his teammates for the game that started around 7:45. Rolle had started 32 consecutive games before Saturday. He arrived at the stadium at 8:34, dressed and emerged from the locker room with 6 minutes left in the first half. He waved at the fans in the FSU section of the crowd, then warmed up on the sideline before entering the game with 1:30 left in the second quarter.
