Perine, Mixon Expected to Play Against Baylor

Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said on the Big 12 teleconference Monday that the No. 9 Sooners may have both of their star running backs when they play No. 25 Baylor on Saturday.

Stoops said sophomore Joe Mixon, who was suspended for last week's game against Iowa State, will be back, and Samaje Perine, who has missed the last three games due to injury, will return to practice this week.

The two have been keys for the Sooners so far this season, combining for 2,127 all purpose yards. The Sooners only have one other scholarship linebacker besides the two, and fullback Dimitri Flowers was the featured ballcarrier against Iowa State. (Oklahoma Daily)
