Oklahoma football: Trevor Knight, Michael Onuoha return to practice

by Ryan Aber and Jason Kersey Published: September 24, 2013

Quarterback Trevor Knight and defensive end Michael Onuoha are now fully participating in practice, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops confirmed.

Knight, a redshirt freshman, started the Sooners' first two games of the season, wins over Louisiana-Monroe and West Virginia. But junior Blake Bell replaced Knight in the fourth quarter of the second game after a knee injury and some inconsistent passing.

Knight rushed for 145 yards on 20 carries, while completing 21 of 48 pass attempts for 205 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions.

Onuoha, a sophomore from Edmond Santa Fe, played sparingly as a true freshman in 2012 and missed fall camp and the first few weeks of this season while recovering from shoulder surgery.


Stoops said he doesn't spend much time thinking about Oklahoma's historic struggles with Notre Dame.

“I've only been a part of a couple of them and they don't have any weight on what happens in this one,” Stoops said.

The Sooners are 1-9 all time against the Irish. Under Stoops, OU has lost twice to Notre Dame — 34-30 in South Bend, Ind., in 1999 and 30-13 last season in Norman.

Oklahoma makes another trip to South Bend on Saturday for a 2:30 p.m. kickoff.
