The decision was taken in a meeting of the Janata Dal United where the party's stand on the BJP's presidential pick was discussed. The NDA, led by the BJP, has 5,37,683 votes and this is including the Shiv Sena, and the shortage is around 12,000 votes.
Prior to that, the last time Oklahoma was nominated for an ESPY came in 2009 when Sam Bradford and Blake Griffin were each in the running for Best Male College Athlete.
SC joins the U.S. Women's Gymnastics team as the only female entries on the seven-team list, which also includes the Chicago Cubs, Clemson Football, the Golden State Warriors, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New England Patriots. In 2015, Lauren Chamberlain was nominated for Best Record Breaking Performance after setting the NCAA career home run record, while in 2013, the Sooners were up for Best Team after winning the 2013 national championship and Keilani Ricketts was nominated in the category of Best Female College Athlete. Clemson had wins over the No. 3, 2 and 1 teams in the nation and beat six teams that finished the season in the top 25. He also rushed for 43 yards and a score.
