3 OU linemen make Outland list

NORMAN – Three Oklahoma players are on the first Outland Trophy watch list released prior to the 2010 college football season. The three are offensive tackle Cory Brandon, center Ben Habern and defensive tackle Adrian Taylor.

Brandon, a 6-7, 310-pound senior, currently sits atop the Sooner depth chart at right tackle. He is the most experienced player along OU’s offensive front with appearances in 30 Oklahoma games.

Habern, a sophomore, was the starting center last season as a freshman from game two through 11. He was felled by an ankle injury at Texas Tech and missed the final two contests of the campaign.

Taylor, a senior, had a breakout season in 2009 when he registered 37 tackles, including seven for loss and 3.5 sacks. He also knocked down one pass, recovered one fumble and blocked a kick.

The award is presented annually by the Football Writers Association of America to the outstanding college offensive lineman or defensive tackle.

The FWAA All-America Committee will select three finalists in late November and eventually the overall winner.

The Outland Trophy, presented annually since 1946, is the third oldest award in major college football. It is named after the late John Outland, an All-America lineman at Penn and Kansas at the turn of the century. The 2010 winner will be announced on The Home Depot ESPNU College Football Awards Show on Dec. 9.

The Outland Trophy presentation banquet, sponsored by the Greater Omaha Sports Committee, will be on Jan. 13 in Omaha, Neb.

OU beats USC in CWS opener

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Caleb Bushyhead homered and drove in the winning run, and Jeremy Erben and Ryan Duke worked out of bases-loaded situations in the eighth inning to lead Oklahoma to a 4-3 victory over South Carolina in the rain-plagued College World Series on Sunday night.

The start of the game was delayed 4 hours, 15 minutes, and play was halted for an additional 2:01 by rain and lightning in the middle of the sixth inning.

Bushyhead homered to break a 1-1 tie in the second, and he singled into the right-field corner to make it 3-2 in the fourth.

South Carolina was within a run after Duke walked Jackie Bradley on four pitches with the bases loaded in the ninth, but Duke got Adrian Morales to fly out to end the game.
