OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ The University of Oklahoma athletic department will ask the school's Board of Regents this week to award a $10.3 million contract to buy and replace the scoreboard systems for the Sooners' football and basketball facilities in Norman.

According to an agenda for the regents' meeting, OU President David Boren will recommend that the seven-member board approve giving the contract for the project to Daktronics, Incorporated of Brookings, South Dakota.

Daktronics was the only company to bid on the project for the Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium and the Lloyd Noble Center.

OU athletic department spokesman Kenny Mossman says the scoreboards would be built in three phases over a two-year period, but declined further comment on the project until Thursday, when the regents are expected to hear the proposal.
