Oklahoma Sooners Game Notes
Oklahoma sophomore WR Trejan Bridges has been reinstated and will play in the Big 12 Championship game this Saturday. Bridges (6'1/183) was suspended last year, along with Rhamondre Stevenson and Ronnie Perkins, before their Peach Bowl tilt against Baylor. While Perkins and Stevenson were suspended by the school and since reinstated, it appears Bridges' punishment had to be cleared with the NCAA before he could return. and defensive lineman Ronnie Perkins. A four-star commit, Bridges (6'1/183) had not been a big part of the offense as a freshman, tallying seven receptions for 82 yards and two scores. He will make his first appearance in over a year this Saturday against Iowa State in the Big 12 Championship.
