TAHLEQUAH, Okla. (AP) -- Cherokee Nation officials will be giving away T-shirts with the University of Oklahoma logo and quarterback Sam Bradford's name and jersey number written in Cherokee at the BCS National Championship game in Miami.

The tribe says it wants to acknowledge the accomplishments of OU's Heisman Trophy winner, who is a member of the Cherokee Nation.

Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Chad Smith will wear the T-shirt while attending Thursday night's game between OU and Florida at Dolphin Stadium.
