The Sooners are wearing patches that read "Black Lives Matters" and "Sooners for Humanity" above the Big 12 logo on their uniforms ahead of their Saturday match against Missouri State. The team also wore black warmup T-shirts that had the same logo and the words "Together as One" on the back.

The Big 12 is allowing schools to wear a customized patch on their uniforms this season with the conference's "anti-racism, anti-hate" campaign announced Sept. 7. 

"We're using a wide variety of our platforms to do the advertising and the programming that will make a difference," Bowlsby said. "And so we've got a lot to look forward to in the coming football, volleyball, soccer, (and) cross country seasons."
