Bowman was taken to the hospital for a re-occurrence of his partially collapsed lung. He was hit in the rib cage late in the second quarter Saturday by Sooners Linebacker Curtis Bolton as he approached the goal line.

Bowman stayed in for an ensuing touchdown pass to Da’Leon Ward, but sat out of the second half of the game.

He was hospitalized in September following an injury during Texas Tech’s game with West Virginia.
