Saturday doubleheader: Football and hoops

Before attending Saturday’s 7 p.m. kickoff against Nebraska, Oklahoma fans can get a glimpse of the Big 12 Conference men’s favorite when the Sooners hold an intrasquad basketball scrimmage at McCasland Field House.

The scrimmage is open and free to the public. Doors will open at 2:30 p.m., with drills starting at 3, followed by two 15-minute periods of live action beginning at 3:30.

Tickets available

A limited number of student tickets for the Nebraska game have been made available to the public.

The tickets, $87 each, are for reserved seats in section 26. The tickets are available for online purchase at

Manny on the mend

OU wide receiver Manny Johnson has participated in practices this week, yet remains questionable in his return from a dislocated elbow.

Johnson has been fitted with a brace to keep the elbow stabilized.

"Who knows?” said wide receivers coach Jay Norvell. "As he gets more comfortable with the (brace), he’s got a better chance to play. We’ll see how he progresses.”

WR watch

Thursday is decision day for North Carolina prospect Jheranie Boyd, one of the top recruits in the country who counts OU among his five favorites.

A 6-foot-2, 185-pound wide receiver from Gastonia’s Ashbrook High, Boyd took official visits to OU, Illinois, Missouri and North Carolina State.
