NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - After watching Blake Bell slice and dice Tulsa's defense, the question seems obvious - how in the world did anyone beat him out as No. 14 Oklahoma's starting quarterback during the preseason?
On Saturday, Bell gave what was - statistically, at least - the best performance ever by any Oklahoma quarterback making his first career start, completing 27-of-37 passes for 413 yards and four touchdowns as the Sooners rolled to a 51-20 win.
But two weeks earlier, Bell watched freshman Trevor Knight start in the season opener against Louisiana-Monroe. Knight suffered a bruised knee a week later against West Virginia, opening the door for Bell.
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops says ``there's no sense in rehashing'' why he chose Knight over Bell during the preseason.
Stoops says Bell showed poise and consistency and earned the starting job for the Sooners' game Sept. 28 at No. 22 Notre Dame.
