Led by QB Blake Bell, Oklahoma was able to pull away quickly against Tulsa to win 51-20. When I say quickly, I mean it. Fox Sports says it best:
Sterling Shepard caught eight passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns — all career highs — and Jaz Reynolds had 109 yards receiving and one score for Oklahoma (3-0). The Sooners scored on their first five possessions against Tulsa (1-2) to continue their dominance in the series, having won 12 of the last 13 games between the in-state rivals.
Various players had monster games as receivers of Bell’s passing. And, Oklahoma is on fire:
The Sooners are 13-0 against Tulsa as a ranked team and 7-0 against the Golden Hurricane since Bob Stoops became Oklahoma’s coach in 1999. Oklahoma is 3-0 for the third time for four seasons
Blake took advantage of an injury to starting QB Trevor Knight and had his first career start vs Tulsa. Now, Knight was struggling in his passing game in the first two games so if Bell does start more or all the games from here on out, you could look at the struggles as the reason. I don’t think it’s fair to lose your spot just because you got injured, ya know? We’ll see.
But, here’s how Bell did: Passed for 413 yards landing four touchdowns. Not bad at all. Let’s see if he can keep this up.
By the way, Los Angeles Clippers star,
Kris Humpries Blake Griffin stopped by. He’s from Oklahoma himself on the basketball side of things.
