Crow finds niche at fullback
Junior Brandon Crow may be in his first season on the offensive side, after spending the last three years at linebacker. But offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson foresees Crow playing in spots at fullback this season despite being new to the position.

"Brandon has a niche,” Wilson said. "He could be a really good short-yardage, goal-line-type guy.”

Wilson recognized Crow’s potential in that role early on this month.

"One day, I said, ‘Go run right at that (defender) and hit him,’ ” Wilson said. "He then ran over and knocked the tar out of the guy.

"He’s doing well.”

University officials revealed the roof at Cowboys Stadium will be closed during OU’s game with BYU. ... Mike Balogun’s attorney, Woody Glass, submitted a sixth sworn affidavit to Cleveland County District Court on Wednesday that supports Balogun did not play semi-pro football after his 21st birthday. Glass said earlier this week he’s hoping to get Balogun certified by the NCAA out of court.
