TAHLEQUAH, Okla. (AP) - Cherokee Nation officials will be giving away T-shirts with the University of Oklahoma logo and quarterback Sam Bradford's name and jersey number written in Cherokee at the BCS National Championship game in Miami.
The Tahlequah-based Indian tribe says it wants to acknowledge the accomplishments of OU's Heisman Trophy winner, who is a member of the Cherokee Nation.
Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Chad Smith will wear the T-shirt while attending Thursday night's game between OU and Florida at Dolphin Stadium.
