NORMAN — Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight took a big hit to his leg late in the first half, causing him to limp around and be examined by OU's training staff.

Knight returned to action in the third quarter, but didn't rush a single time, and struggled throwing the ball.

Here's a look at each of Oklahoma's 17 offensive snaps in the third quarter of Saturday's 16-7 win over West Virginia. Seven of these plays originated on West Virginia's side of the field.

In all, Knight attempted five passes in the third quarter — completing only one — and handed off to running backs 12 times.

Time, Down-distance, yard line: Play result

15:00, 1-10, O25: Knight handed off to Brennan Clay, who gained one yard.

14:28, 2-9, O26: Knight faked a handoff to Clay, rolled to his right and threw a pass off his back foot intended for Jalen Saunders. The pass was short and nearly intercepted by diving West Virginia safety K.J. Dillon.

14:21, 3-9, O26: Knight dropped back and threw a screen pass to Sterling Shepard. The ball was off target, but Shepard reached out to make the catch and fought forward for a six-yard gain. This would be Knight's only pass completion of the second half.

12:46, 1-10, O12: Knight handed off to Damien Williams, who ran to his left and picked up 12 yards and a first down.

12:37, 1-10, O24: Knight took a handoff from under center and handed off again to Williams, who gained five yards.

12:24, 2-5, O29: Knight handed the ball to Clay on what appeared to be an option play. Clay ran to his right, broke one tackle and sprinted down the sideline for a 34-yard pickup.
