DeMarco Murray will play on Saturday

Oklahoma running back DeMarco Murray is expected to play against Nebraska on Saturday, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops announced on Thursday.

Murray suffered a knee injury in the fourth quarter of Oklahoma's win at Oklahoma State last week, but returned to practice on Thursday.

With 1,053 yards and 14 touchdowns, the senior is enjoying his second 1,000-yard rushing season, and has caught 64 passes for 535 yards and five touchdowns.
