"We fully expect him to play on Saturday. We did not practice him last week. We rested him. Everybody else seems to be healthy at this point.”

THURMAN TO BE HONORED SATURDAY

Thurman Thomas, OSU’s all-time leading rusher, will be in attendance for Saturday’s game against Oklahoma, where he will be honored at halftime for his selection into the College Football Hall of Fame.

Thomas’ official induction will take place in December in New York City. In August 2007, Thomas was selected for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

While at OSU, Thomas was a two-time All-American and two-time Big Eight Conference Offensive Player of the Year. He rushed for 4,595 yards and 43 touchdowns in his OSU career

SOME CAREER ADVICE FOR BRADFORD

Gundy on OU quarterback Sam Bradford:

"He’s very good. He’s very, very accurate. He actually moves a little better, in my opinion. He’s done a better job of converting third downs than he has in the past. If they’re covered, he’ll take it and run down the field, convert and get down. He’s a very good player. I’d recommend that he comes out early (for the NFL) while he has the opportunity.”
