NORMAN, Okla. – With just 60 days until the start of the Sooners’ football season, many fans are already gearing up for the opening day.
However, a recent incident at Florida State University is putting the spotlight on the University of Oklahoma’s football program.
The Florida State Attorney’s Office released surveillance video from the bar on Monday.
Last year, Mixon was suspended from the university after punching Amelia Molitor in a restaurant on Campus Corner in Norman.
Molitor was taken to a hospital and was treated for several broken bones in her face.
Like the incident in Florida, this punch was also captured on surveillance video.
However, it was never made public.
Although it was never made public, the video was shown in court.
Last year, officials say Mixon entered an Alford plea to the assault charges.
He received a one year deferred sentence, served 100 hours of community service and went to cognitive behavior counseling.
Many people took to Twitter to ask why the same crime at two separate universities could have such different punishments.
@TerraFirmaAutos Funny that this is the reaction, not "Why is Joe Mixon still on Oklahoma?" @BarrettSallee

FSU dismisses De'Andre Johnson. If #Sooners weren't already praying that more damaging Joe Mixon punch never surfaces, they are now.

I've also said this many times: Makes me ill OU RB Joe Mixon got his tape sealed. He allegedly knocked a girl UNCONSCIOUS, is still on team.

The Florida State incident also caused some people to compare it to the Ray Rice video.
Rice was charged with aggravated assault and his contract was terminated by the Baltimore Ravens.
