Coach Stoops and the university have confirmed this morning what so many OU fans (I was wrong) had speculated, that star LB Travis Lewis will in fact be given the honor of the #12 jersey tomorrow against the hated Horns.  Obviously they couldn't have picked a better player in one of, if not the best, Austin's best friends on the team. 

Not that Travis needed any extra motivation for this game given the fact that he's a senior and it will be his last, but now he is assured to play like a man absolutely possessed in honor of his teammate and great friend.

I didn't think it was possible, but I'm even more excited for this game now.  And the Texas offensive players should be even more nervous with #12 out there looking to lay some dudes out!
