Sophomore quarterback Trevor Knight was the MVP of the Sooners' 45-31 win over Alabama in the Allstate Sugar Bowl and is expected to be OU's starter in 2014, sparking Blake Bell's decision to move to tight end.

"Even though he could graduate and go somewhere, he wants to finish out and try tight end," coach Bob Stoops said. "I think it's a great fit. Blake has the size, the athleticism, the speed to do that, and he's exhibited his toughness through the years."

Bell's move to tight end, along with the transfer of junior Kendal Thompson, leaves the Sooners with a couple of freshmen behind Knight.  (ESPN.com)
