Bell's passing yardage was the best in a debut for a Sooners quarterback.
Oklahoma State punt returner Josh Stewart won special teams honors while Kansas State defensive back Kip Daily won defensive player of the week honors.
CONSISTENCY KEY FOR FINCH
There's never been much doubt about Roy Finch's talent.
Finch came in as a highly touted running back with a four-star rating and Parade All-American honors.
But even though he was healthy last year, Finch was given just seven carries last season as a junior.
Saturday, with Damien Williams suspended for a game, Finch carried the ball eight times and had a touchdown reception.
“He's been more consistent in everything that he's doing,” Stoops said. “He's practicing. He's doing the things he needs to do on and off the field to have an opportunity to play. You don't just get to play.”
Last season, Oklahoma didn't do well coming off its first bye week.
After winning two nonconference games, the Sooners lost to Kansas State 24-19 after their first week off.
“I think we definitely learned something last time from losing,” offensive tackle Daryl Williams said. “We've got to start looking at film more, and practice starts today, so just practice hard today and throughout the week.”
Williams said he expected Stoops to address the off week and preparations for Notre Dame before Monday's practice.
Oklahoma is 13-5 after an off week during the regular season since Stoops took over in 1999. OU has lost after an off week in each of the last two seasons.
