Ex-OU QB Mildren dies


— Jack Mildren, a former lieutenant governor and the first quarterback in the University of Oklahoma's lofted wishbone offense, died Thursday. Mildren, who had been undergoing treatment for stomach cancer, died at Integris Baptist Medical Center, spokeswoman Brooke Cayot confirmed. He was 58.

Mildren was the quarterback on Oklahoma's wishbone offense in 1971, when the Sooners set an NCAA record by averaging 472.4 rushing yards.
