NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Most of the University of Oklahoma football team are getting to spend a few days off over the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Sooners practiced Wednesday, and afterwards most of the players hightailed it to their respective homes.

They're scheduled to return Sunday, when they'll resume practice.

O-U coach Bob Stoops says players needed the break after playing in 11 games in 12 weeks. The Sooners' last weekend off was in late September.

Stoops says he told his players to buckle up and be careful on the road, but says he didn't issue any directives about eating too much.
