SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - A University of Oklahoma official says the starting quarterback for Oklahoma's national championship teams in 1974 and 1975 is one of two men killed when a small plane slammed into a house in northern Indiana.

St. Joseph County Coroner Randy Magdalinski identified the victims of Sunday's crash as 60-year-old Steven Davis and 58-year-old Wesley Caves, both of Tulsa, Okla.

The OU official confirms that Davis is a former Sooners star. He spoke on condition of anonymity because the school has not yet announced his death.

Davis went 32-1-1 as the Sooners' starter from 1973 to 1975 and started every game of Barry Switzer's first three seasons as head coach.

Caves owned the plane. It was not immediately clear if Caves was piloting when the plane crashed in South Bend.
