The new quarterback signee, who participated in Auburn's final two on-campus practices before the Tigers dismissed for the Christmas holiday, sent out a message on Twitter this morning that he planned on being at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in New Orleans for the game (7:30 p.m., ESPN).
"But does that end up transferring to the field?"
Oklahoma got off to a slow start this season, dropping two of their first three games.
