Oklahoma football: Coaches weren't crazy about Trevor Knight's cross-field TD pass until it worked

by Jason Kersey Published: January 3, 2014

Knight finished completing 32 of 44 pass attempts for 348 yards and four touchdowns against Alabama, setting a Sugar Bowl record for completions.

The Sooners' first offensive series of the game ended when a Knight pass deflected off Jalen Saunders' hands and was intercepted, but on the first play of the next drive, Knight connected with Lacoltan Bester for a 45-yard score.

“The more snaps you get, the more comfortable you feel,” Knight said. “The more completions you get, the more comfortable you feel. It's all about just getting in that rhythm, hitting a few shots early … moving forward from that, going into next year and everything, that's what we're going to ride on.”
