With the new rules allowing schools to provide athletes — both scholarship and walk-on players — with unlimited meals and snacks, athletic departments are getting creative with how they deliver that food to their athletes.

Byrd said this week that the “enhanced fueling stations” would be places where athletes could get fresh sandwiches, smoothies, fresh fruit, hummus and other healthy, fresh options.

The stations will be located under the football stadium and next to Lloyd Noble Center. The mobile option will allow the department an easier way to take food to athletes when they are practicing or have other activities in other areas of the campus.

The school will spend around $1 million due to the food deregulation.

SANCHEZ GOES WITH PETERSON OVER SHERMAN

Sooners cornerback Zack Sanchez sides with Arizona cornerback Patrick Peterson in his back-and-forth feud with Seattle’s Richard Sherman.

“Sherman is obviously going to make plays, but I feel like Pat Pete is one of those guys that is going to get in your face the whole game,” Sanchez said. I kind of like how aggressive his is. Don’t get me wrong, Sherm is going to make plays and he’s going to make the pick. Whoever you choose, you can’t go wrong.”

Neither, though, are Sanchez’s favorite NFL corners. That honor goes to Denver’s Aqib Talib.

“He’s the one corner I watched all season,” Sanchez said. “I watched him against the Saints. He followed Jimmy Graham around. He locked up Jimmy Graham. For a corner to lock up a tight end, you don’t see that very often.

“That’s how I want my game molded as I get bigger and more physical.”
