Joe Mixon might not be part of Oklahoma's football team for now, but Mixon was at Gaylord Family—Oklahoma Memorial Stadium on Thursday.


After the Sooners finished up an open practice and interaction with students, Mixon was seen walking off the field with Sooners Director of High School Relations Rajeeb Hossain.

Mixon, a five-star running back from Oakley, Calif., was suspended for a year on Monday, shortly after pleading not guilty to a misdemeanor in Cleveland County District Court.

Mixon, who was charged with one count of “act resulting in gross injury,” is scheduled to be back in court Sept. 23.

He has reportedly been attending class this week, likely signaling he intends to stay in school in Norman.

STOOPS, BOREN COMPLETE ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE

Coach Bob Stoops, his assistants and university president David Boren all completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge after practice Thursday on Owen Field.

Senior defensive end Chuka Ndulue poured the ice-cold water on Stoops’ head, while senior cornerback Julian Wilson doused Boren.

Stoops and Boren had both been challenged by Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin.

Stoops also was challenged by South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier, Marist women’s basketball coach Brian Giorgis and his brother, Kentucky football coach Mark Stoops.

Before he was doused, Stoops challenged OU athletic director Joe Castiglione, former OU coach Barry Switzer and country music star Toby Keith.
