Earlier: The Oklahoma football team is taking part in tonight's "RAH! Rally," held in anticipation of Saturday's game against Tennessee. This would not be terribly notable, except for the fact that suspended running back Joe Mixon was spotted with the team at the event. You can see him wearing the red headphones in the top-left picture in this tweet, sent by Oklahoma Athletics.

Mixon was also taking pictures with fans at the event:

This wouldn't be a big deal, but Mixon has been suspended from "all team activities" as a result of the misdemeanor assault charge against him. Perhaps the pep rally doesn't count, but considering he's with the team, it sure seems like it would.

Attending a pep rally is hardly a big deal, but one would think Mixon would be trying to keep a low profile, considering the severity and timing of his case.
