OU football: Bob Stoops impressed with OSU's performance against Baylor

The Cowboys achieved what the Sooners couldn't in losses to Baylor and Texas.

Saturday at Kansas State, though, Knight and the Sooners converted 9 of 15 third-down attempts and possessed the ball for 10 more minutes than the Wildcats.

Oklahoma State's offense was fantastic against Baylor and has improved throughout the season, so for the Sooners to have a shot at upsetting the Cowboys in Stillwater, their offense will have to replicate that performance in Manhattan.

Knight wowed his coaches and teammates last year running the scout team, and he won the starting job in August because of his big-play ability and electric athleticism.

OU defensive coordinator Mike Stoops watched Knight shine against his first-team unit a year ago, and said Monday “there's not a throw on the football field he can't make.”

“It's probably the most difficult position in all of sports,” Mike Stoops said. “I don't think I'm jumping out on a limb saying that. I think to play it at the highest level for young players takes time. You're gonna go throw evolutions and progressions.

“Hopefully he can parlay (Saturday's performance) into another strong game.”
