Cornerback Demontre Hurst will wear No. 12 for Oklahoma this week against Ball State.

The Sooner captains designate a different defender to wear No. 12 each week as a tribute to their teammate Austin Box, who died on May 19.

Quarterback Landry Jones kept his No. 12 jersey after talking with Box's parents.

Last week, safety Javon Harris wore No. 12. This season, Hurst has seven tackles, a forced fumble, a tackle for loss and a pass breakup.
