NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -Oklahoma defensive tackle DeMarcus Granger has undergone back surgery and will not play in the BCS National Championship against Florida.
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops made the announcement Wednesday, a day after saying starting running back DeMarco Murray also will miss the Jan. 8 title game against Florida.
Murray is out with a hamstring injury and is also scheduled for surgery.
A backup, Granger played in 11 games during the season and recorded 20 tackles and two fumble recoveries.
Granger did not play in the Big 12 Championship game against Missouri because of back problems.
The surgery was performed Monday and OU trainer Scott Anderson says Granger likely will miss spring practice while recovering.
