NORMAN, Okla. – Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops announced Thursday that redshirt freshman Trevor Knight will start at quarterback for the 2013 season opener against Louisiana-Monroe on Aug. 31.

“Both Trevor and Blake (Bell) have competed hard and both will be ready to play against Louisiana-Monroe,” Stoops said. “Like every other position on our team, I expect them both to continue competing for the starting job.”
