Oklahoma Sooner Football Articles and Notes

Keenan Clayton named Co-Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week: Oklahoma strong side linebacker Keenan Clayton has been named the Co-Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week. The junior had a career-high 14 tackles in the Sooners' 49-17 win at Baylor last Saturday. After starting two games at strong safety in 2006, Clayton had worked in a back-up role until earning a starting linebacker job this season. The change has been good for the junior from Sulphur Springs, Texas. He currently ranks No. 3 on the team in tackles with 40 and is tied for the top spot in tackles for loss with six and in fumbles forced with two, Prior to this season, Clayton's career high for tackles was four, which he accomplished twice. He has exceeded that figure in four of the five games thus far in 2008 and has averaged 10.3 stops over the last three games. (SoonerSports PR)
