Oklahoma Sooner Football Articles and Notes

Box, Balogun expected to play: Oklahoma middle linebacker Austin Box, who sustained a knee sprain against Oklahoma State on Nov. 29, is also back at practice. Brent Venables said that Box and the backup Mike Balogun would play against Florida. After practice Sunday, Coach Bob Stoops said Box's knee was "loosening up for him and he's moving around pretty well, really." (NY Times)

Former Sooner Clayton visits team: Ex-Sooner and current Baltimore Ravens wideout Mark Clayton made an impromptu appearance at OU's press conference Sunday morning at the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa. Clayton wished defensive coordinator Brent Venables and several Sooner players luck in the BCS National Championship before heading to Dolphin Stadium for Baltimore's NFL playoff game against Miami. The Ravens stayed at the Harbor Beach Marriott over the weekend, the same hotel where all the BCS National Championship press conferences were held. (The Oklahoman)
