NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight has had the big game.

Now he seeks consistency.

As a redshirt freshman, he passed for 348 yards and four touchdowns and was the MVP in Oklahoma's 45-31 victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl in January. He was rewarded with the unquestioned starting job and a newfound fame that gave him increased speaking opportunities and lifted his Twitter following to more than 25,000.

With those spoils comes a new level of pressure. The Sooners are expected to be in the mix for the national title, and they face a bright spotlight with a quarterback who has had one dominant game in his career. Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said the key is for Knight to duplicate that kind of performance, starting Aug. 30 against Louisiana Tech.
