This is not what the Oklahoma Sooners needed right now.
Earlier Wednesday, it was reported that No. 4 Oklahoma would reportedly be without a few key contributors in the Peach Bowl against No. 1 LSU.
SoonerScoop.com stated multiple players on the squad failed the mandatory drug tests given to each program competing in NCAA championship events after testing positive for marijuana.
The players are WR Trejan Bridges, DL Ronnie Perkins and RB Rhamondre Stevenson who will all be suspended for the playoff semifinal.
Former Oklahoma player and current Oklahoma sideline reporter for the SoonerSports network, Gabe Ikard, confirmed the suspensions come from failing an NCAA drug test for weed.
“Do we know what the suspension is for?” also a co-host of The Franchise Players and former Oklahoma player Kelly Gregg asked.
“Weed,” Ikard said.
“Recreational?” Kelly asked.
“Recreational. Not PEDs from what I’ve been told,” Ikard answered.
According to Ikard, Oklahoma is appealing the suspension.
Here is what the NCAA rules on the appeals process states:
Oklahoma and LSU will play in the College Football Playoff at the Peach Bowl in Atlanta on Dec. 28.
