Senior Bowl bound

Oklahoma offensive tackle Trent Williams and running back Chris Brown both accepted invitations to the 2010 Senior Bowl Monday.

Williams was named a first team All-American by the AFCA, AP and Walter Camp Football Foundation in 2009. The 6-5, 318-pound left tackle was also a first team All-Big 12 selection and honorable mention Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year. He made 37 starts over his career and led the Sooners with 97 knockdowns his senior season.

Brown was a Big 12 honorable mention selection by the league's coaches this season. The Alexandria, La., native rushed for 749 yards and seven touchdowns in 2009 and added another 131 receiving yards. He ranks fourth on the school's all-time list with 45 career touchdowns and 42 rushing touchdowns. He is also tenth in Oklahoma history with 2,877 rushing yards and fifth with 615 rushing attempts. Brown's biggest year came in 2008 when he became just the 20th player in school history to break 1,000 yards in a season (1,220).

"Trent and Chris are both outstanding football players and we are excited to add them to our North roster," Senior Bowl President and CEO Steve Hale said. "We are confident that they will both do a fine job of representing the University of Oklahoma."
