/> What's the status of injured defensive end Auston English?

English missed Saturday's game against Baylor with a hairline fracture on his right ankle. English probably could've played if OU needed him, but because the Sooners were playing the last-place Bears, the coaches held him out.

OU sorely missed English's relentless pass rush and nearly failed to register a sack for the first time this year, until Cory Bennett came up with one in the fourth quarter.

English should be back this weekend at Texas Tech.

Will Texas Tech coach Mike Leach be reprimanded following his postgame rant about the officiating in Saturday's 59-43 loss at Texas?

The question isn't if, but how Leach will be punished.

In case you missed it, Leach ripped the officials, suggesting the crew favored Texas. Leach was upset officials negated two Tech touchdowns in the third quarter. The first was overturned when replay showed the receiver let the ball hit the ground. On the next play, a touchdown pass was called back because of a holding penalty.

At best, Leach will pay a fine. At worst, the Big 12 will suspend him for Saturday's game against the Sooners.
