In a little bit of breaking news tonight, It’s being reported that Shawn Oakman and Orion Stewart are suspended for Baylor’s opener at SMU.
Just learnwd that Oakman's suspension is one game for a violation of team rules. CB Orion Stewart also suspended. Both will be back week 2

It won’t do much to change the outcome of the game, but losing both players is quite the blow. Orion started in 12 of the Bear’s 13 games last season, and was named to the All-Big 12’s first team. The more notable loss is Oakman though. The defensive end known for his physical stature was an All-American in 2014.
Several outlets are reporting the suspension has been confirmed with sources at the school, but the only reason given is a violation of team rules.
Both players will return for the Bears’ second game of the season against Lamar.
