Sooners' Simmons injures knee

  • Peterson, Bomar on Maxwell watch list: OU running back Adrian Peterson and quarterback Rhett Bomar are on the first watch list issued for the 70th Maxwell Award, presented annually to the top player in college football.

    The initial list features 60 players, selected for earining all-conference or All-American status in the past, or in the case of underclassmen, on recommendations from the Maxwell Football Club Advisory Committee.

    Peterson was a finalist for the honor in his freshman season of 2004 and was on the watch list last year as well.

    Bomar set OU freshman marks for completions, passing yards and passing touchdowns last season.

    Oklahoma has produced two previous Maxwell winners: Tommy McDonald in 1952 and Jason White in 2004.
