OU cornerback Demontre Hurst to wear Austin Box's No. 12 jersey

FROM STAFF REPORTS Published: November 4, 2011

Oklahoma cornerback Demontre Hurst will wear the No. 12 jersey against Texas A&M on Saturday as part of OU's weekly tribute to the late Austin Box.

The Sooners are having a different defensive player wear Box's old jersey number each week of this season. Box died in May of an overdose of painkillers. He would have been a senior this season and was in line to be the Sooners' starting middle linebacker.
