In Saturday’s game, Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight went the distance even with the Sooners having the game well in hand.
That’s because backup Cody Thomas was banged up a bit, though OU coach Bob Stoops said he could’ve put Thomas in to just hand off the ball in the fourth quarter.
Because of Thomas’ status, quarterback-turned-tight end Blake Bell keeps taking limited reps at quarterback.
“He took some last week and was well and throwing the ball great,” Stoops said. “The kids were teasing him that he’s still got it. But the projection is that Cody will be ready to go this week.”
Stoops has expressed a desire to redshirt freshman quarterback Justice Hansen.
