Oklahoma Sooner starting wide receiver Jalen Saunders was arrested Saturday for possession of marijuana, according to a media report in Oklahoma. There's been no official word from the school as of Sunday afternoon.
Saunders, a graduate from Pleasant Grove, had seven catches for 108 yards in Oklahoma's win over TCU Saturday. It is likely Oklahoma will receive a BCS bowl bid after its 10-2 season, but whether Saunders will be in the lineup is unknown.
