NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops says for a quarterback with exactly one collegiate start, Blake Bell is about as prepared as one can be to face a marquee opponent on the road,
Stoops and the Sooners expect a calm demeanor from Bell on Saturday, when No. 14 Oklahoma (3-0) will visit No. 22 Notre Dame (3-1). That's because while the junior didn't make his first start until Sept. 14 against Tulsa, he's played in plenty of big games during his career.
He played in 20 games during his freshman and sophomore seasons, rushing for 372 yards and 24 touchdowns.
He saw action at key times last season against Notre Dame, Oklahoma State and Texas. Against Notre Dame, he scored the first rushing touchdown of the season surrendered by the Fighting Irish.
