OU football: Every player on the Sooners' 2013 football guide cover tore his ACL this calendar year

by Erik Horne Published: August 26, 2014

Three players adorned the cover of the 2013 Oklahoma football media guide -- cornerback Aaron Colvin, fullback Trey Millard and offensive lineman Gabe Ikard.

Besides being seniors, the trio has something else in common: each player has suffered a torn ACL in the last calendar year.

First, it was Millard during the 2013 season against Texas Tech (Oct. 26), then came Colvin during Senior Bowl practice (Jan. 21). Ikard tore his ACL playing for the Tennnessee Titans against the New Orleans Saints in the NFL preseason.

"The 2013 poster curse is claiming it's last ACL this week. @AColvin114 good luck in surgery @GabeIkard," Millard tweeted Monday morning.

Even Bob Stoops is a part of the club. He didn't go down last season like Colvin, Ikard and Millard, but Stoops tore his ACL during his college days playing defensive back for Iowa.
