Alabama Defense May Need To Prepare For Two Oklahoma Quarterbacks


When the Alabama Crimson Tide take on the Oklahoma Sooners in the Sugar Bowl, the Tide defense will likely need to prepare for two quarterbacks.

According to The Oklahoman, it’s not clear whether junior Blake Bell or redshirt freshman Trevor Knight will start at quarterback. The Sooners haven’t settled with one signal-caller, and it could be that both see action against Alabama.

From the article:

OU hasn’t established a consistent, firm offensive identity all season long, so it certainly isn’t going to settle that issue in the last game of the season against one of the best teams in the country.

An injury to Knight forced Oklahoma to restructure their offensive strategy, but with his return in time to face the Crimson Tide – along with the success of Bell against Oklahoma State – the Sooners have options.

“We’ll have a mixture of a little bit of everything heading into the Sugar Bowl and try to give ourselves a chance to win the ballgame,” said offensive coordinator Josh Heupel.
