Oklahoma Sooner Football Articles and Notes

UT to honor former Sooner Darrell Royal: Texas will wear throwback uniforms saluting former coach Darrell Royal when the Longhorns face Texas A&M on Thanksgiving, the school announced. The white road uniform, designed by Nike, was unveiled at Royal's 85th birthday celebration Saturday in Austin. It features a patch with Royal's initials (DKR). The helmets include each player's number above the Longhorn logo, similar to the style of Royal's first national championship team in 1963. "I think it's very fitting that we honor Coach Royal and our four national championship teams in a game like Texas A&M that has been a special rivalry for so many years," coach Mack Brown said in a statement. (Dallas Morning News) Darrell Royal played QB and DB (1946-'49) at Oklahoma under Bud Wilkinson.
