ESPN's Phil Steele grades Oklahoma redshirt sophomore QB Trevor Knight as the No. 9 Heisman candidate.

Knight has emerged as a popular darkhorse candidate, which means he's no longer a sleeper. He started only five games last year, but put the nation on notice by completing 32 of 44 attempts for 348 yards, four touchdowns and an interception against Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. "Knight's stock and the Sooners' expectations have skyrocketed for 2014," Steele wrote. "Unlike other Oklahoma quarterbacks in the Bob Stoops era, Knight has great mobility and it will help playing on a Sooners team that is my favorite to win the Big 12 this year."

ESPN's Kevin Weidl was "most impressed" with Oklahoma redshirt sophomore QB Trevor Knight's "decisiveness and anticipation" during his performance in the Sugar Bowl.

"OU QB Trevor Knight put on a show in the Sugar Bowl. Most impressed by his decisiveness and anticipation. Tape littered with dimes," Weidl tweeted. Knight completed 32 of 44 attempts for 348 yards, four touchdowns and an interception against Alabama. With only eight starts under his belt, Knight will have an opportunity to fully showcase his talents as the Sooners' starting QB in 2014.

Oklahoma redshirt freshman QB Trevor Knight completed 32 of 44 attempts for 348 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in the school's 45-31 win over Alabama.

Knight opened the season as the starter but he struggled week in and week out. We aren't sure what happened, since Knight was unreal in the Sugar Bowl. He displayed great movement skills and a downfield arm with pinpoint accuracy. Knight will certainly open next season as the school's starter.

Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops will not announce a starting quarterback until shortly before the Sugar Bowl against Alabama.

Redshirt freshman QB Trevor Knight, who separated his shoulder in the Oklahoma State game, has returned to practice and is fully healthy, according to Stoops. Junior Blake Bell has been highly erratic this season, but Good Blake led the Sooners to a comeback win over the hated Cowboys. Neither Knight nor Bell will find the Crimson Tide defense generous.

Oklahoma redshirt freshman QB Trevor Knight will miss the remainder of the school's game against Oklahoma State with a shoulder injury.

Knight was seen on the sideline in a sling. Redshirt sophomore Kendal Thompson initially replaced Knight, but Blake Bell later emerged from the sideline. In reality, none of the three are viable options at this point in time.

Oklahoma redshirt freshman Trevor Knight will start at QB against Kansas State, according to beat writer Ryan Aber.

Head coach Bob Stoops would not name his starting quarterback when speaking with the media, but Knight is an obvious choice since Blake Bell is dealing with a head injury. Knight was demoted to backup after opening the season as the starter.

Oklahoma redshirt freshman QB Trevor Knight returned to practice on Wednesday after missing time with a sprained knee.

Knight was injured against West Virginia and lost his job to Blake Bell. The Sooners face Notre Dame and their stout front seven, so the Bell Dozer might be the best option to break through the Irish hog mollies on the interior. We think Bob Stoops also needs to gameplan a few easy completions to Jalen Saunders.

Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said redshirt freshman QB Trevor Knight (knee) will practice on Monday.

Stoops had no updates on Knight's condition. Knight is reportedly suffering from sprained knee ligaments. His replacement, junior Blake Bell, went 27-for-37 for 413 yards and four TDs in September 14's blowout win over Tulsa. Bell has posted a 94.9 raw Quarterback Rating this year, according to ESPN, compared with Knight's meager 34.8 QBR. Knight may find that his starting job has been stolen by the time he's fully healthy.

Oklahoma redshirt freshman QB Trevor Knight will miss this weekend's game against Ulsa, according to Carey Murdock of Rivals.

Knight is reportedly suffering from sprained knee ligaments. This means junior Blake Bell will likely take over as the starting quarterback, but we doubt that fixes Oklahoma's pocket passing woes. Knight created a few plays with his feet, but only seems capable of completing multiple passes when on the move.

Oklahoma redshirt freshman QB Trevor Knight completed 11 of 28 attempts for 86 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception on Saturday against Louisiana-Monroe.

Knight did add 103 rushing yards on 13 carries, however. The Sooners are in an odd position with a scrambler like Knight and a bulldozer in Blake Bell. Bob Stoops was going to rely on his running game regardless, but neither is an accomplished passer. That is bad news for future slot receiver Jalen Saunders and talented Jaz Reynolds.

ESPN's Joe Schad talked to one person who watched Oklahoma starting redshirt freshman Trevor Knight practice and concluded the QB's arm strength is underrated.

Schad made sure to mention Knight isn't solely a runner, but that he'll hurt defenses with his arm as well. We hope this is the case, since Knight was likely picked over junior Blake Bell for possessing better throwing ability. The redshirt freshman has drawn some comparisons to Johnny Manziel, and his career path mirrors the Aggie's thus far.

Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops named redshirt freshman Trevor Knight the school's starting QB.

Many believed junior Blake Bell would be named the starter after he took red zone snaps away from Landry Jones the past few seasons. "Both competed hard and both will be ready to play," Stoops said. "I expect them both to continue competing for the starting job." The decision likely came down to Bell's passing skills, or lack thereof. This could be a big boost for senior receiver Jalen Saunders and his running mate Jaz Reynolds, but expect the school to rely on their running backs. The Sooners open against Louisiana-Monroe.

Oklahoma senior C Gabe Ikard compared redshirt freshman QB Trevor Knight to Johnny Manziel.

Ikard likened Knight's supreme athleticism and penchant for effectively throwing on the run to Texas A&M's Heisman winner. Knight, who, like Manziel, took a redshirt as a true freshman, threw for more than 2,000 yards and rushed for almost 1,000 yards as a senior at San Antonio (Texas) Reagan High School. He sits behind junior Blake Bell on the depth chart, but Knight will be a must-own in most college fantasy football formats if he unseats The Belldozer and helms the high-octane Sooner offense.
