Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops says it was consistency in practice that won Trevor Knight the job as the Sooners' starting quarterback.

The redshirt freshman will take his first game snaps for No. 16 Oklahoma when the Sooners host Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday.
Knight beat out junior Blake Bell for the starting job.

Stoops recalled how Knight first impressed coaches while serving last season as the scout-team quarterback, simulating the offenses that the Sooners' defense would face each week. Stoops says Knight's consistency carried over into spring practice and then into preseason practice.

Stoops says Oklahoma still plans to use Bell in the run-oriented "Belldozer" package but wouldn't say how much action Bell might otherwise see during games.
