Bob Stoops says it's not that the Sooners don't know whether to go with Trevor Knight or Blake Bell. It's just that the Sooners don't want Alabama to know.

“We intend to be unsettled at quarterback all the way up to the game,” Stoops said. “I wouldn't say it's unsettled. It's purposeful. And let's face it. Both of those guys, in different situations, have really done well. So we've gotta have ‘em both ready to go.”

Alabama coach Nick Saban said there's not a great difference in what OU does with either Bell or Knight, “but I do think their skill sets are different in terms of one guy being a big, physical runner and the other not as big, but very athletic. I think our players have to be very aware of the two styles those guys have.” (The Oklahoman)
