Oklahoma forward Blake Griffin was knocked out of a conference match up against Texas in the middle of the first half on Saturday.

The Sooners traveled to Texas riding their star forward Griffin, who helped the No. 2 Sooners to a 25-1 record, and a possible top-ranking, pending the outcome of this game.

Griffin got an early foul in the first 10 seconds of the game and wasn't much of a factor for the Sooners. He picked up a second foul with about 13 minutes left in the first half. Griffin left and sat on the bench.

He came back into the game three minutes later and got hit in the face going for the ball. He had to leave because he had a bloody nose.

Griffin didn't come back in the first, and when the Sooners came out of the locker room to start the second half, the report came back that Griffin had a concussion.
