“We're continuing to move forward and find out each and every week,” Heupel said when asked what the offense's identity is. “We're a football team that, even last week, we rushed it efficiently enough. We need to be better in play-action pass. We've gotta make some explosive plays in the pass game.
“There's more out there in the run game, too.”
Oklahoma's run game is one area of the offense where the Sooners have a good idea of what they've got: A deep, impressive stable of running backs all apparently capable of carrying the load should that become necessary.
Against Texas, four different backs recorded at least five carries and averaged at least 4.6 yards per rush.
But Oklahoma's passing game has to improve, if only to keep defenses on their toes.
“It seems like they're gonna start crowding the box against us, almost daring us to throw it,” Ikard said. “It's kinda the vibe we got from how Texas lined up against us.”
Coach Bob Stoops has denied that there are two different offenses for each quarterback, saying the attacks with Knight and Bell are pretty much the same.
“You don't come up with a new offense every week,” Stoops said. “We never have.
“No, you just try and iron things out and make them better and smoother, and block them better and execute better. But no, we're not designing new structures all the time.”
