“After sitting over there for a couple quarters trying to stay loose and you bust out on one, it feels kind of weird,” Bell said. “All of a sudden you think someone is going to get you.”
The run was the longest by a Sooners quarterback since Patrick Fletcher's 58-yard run in 1998.
On the next drive, Bell got another rare chance for him.
After picking up a first down on a third-and-short try, Sooners coach Bob Stoops left Bell on the field for first down.
Bell wound up gaining eight yards on first down and six on the next.
He stayed on the field for four consecutive plays before Jones returned.
“It wasn't planned of anything,” Bell said. “I got that first and they just waved me to stay out there. It was nice to run the clock down a little bit on that drive.”
