Freshman safety loses redshirt eligibility

Delarrin Turner-Yell appeared in his fifth game Saturday at West Virginia, meaning the freshman safety is no longer eligible to redshirt.

Turner-Yell became the sixth Sooner freshman to cross the redshirt threshold.

College football’s new redshirt rule allows players to participate in up to four games and still redshirt and maintain an extra year of eligibility. We’ll monitor how the Sooners are using the rule each week in our redshirt tracker.

With big point totals came big ratings.

Oklahoma’s 59-56 win at West Virginia on Friday night drew the biggest television audience for an ESPN Friday game since 2010 — a span of 89 games.

The 3.4 overnight rating for OU-West Virginia was a 162 percent increase from the similar game window (Virginia Tech-Virginia) last season, according to an ESPN release.
