NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said nothing during his weekly press conference on Monday to indicate he wouldn't start Trevor Knight at quarterback Saturday at No. 6 Oklahoma State.
Knight played well in relief in a 48-10 win over Iowa State and as the starter in a 41-31 win at Kansas State two weeks ago.
Bell, who has started eight games this season for No. 18 Oklahoma (9-2, 6-2 Big 12) left the Iowa State game after suffering a concussion and wasn't available against Kansas State.
Stoops said he assumed Bell would be cleared for action if needed against Oklahoma State (10-1, 7-1).
Stoops also said he felt good about how well the Sooners have moved the ball offensively with Knight at quarterback for most of the past two games. Knight entered the Iowa State game in the second quarter and the Sooners closed the game with 45 unanswered points, as he rushed for 123 yards and a touchdown and passed for 61 yards.
Against Kansas State, he rushed for 82 yards and a touchdown and completed 14 of 20 passes for a career-high 171 yards and a touchdown. More important, he looked considerably sharper than he had in two uneven performances to open the season in wins over Louisiana-Monroe and West Virginia.
