Oklahoma suspended freshman running back Joe Mixon for the season Monday after he pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of assault.

One of the nation’s top recruits, Mixon is accused of knocking a woman unconscious with a punch and breaking several bones in her face last month.

“That’s not something I’m going to delve into right now, because it leads to further questions in that regard, and I’m going to talk about the guys that are eligible to play right now,” Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said Monday.

The university said in a release Monday that Mixon may continue as a student and may be eligible for financial aid.

“As the university has demonstrated in the past, we are committed to winning the right way,” the school said in the release. “As an example to others, OU sets the highest possible standards for its student athletes, coaches and staff.”
