Oklahoma spring game features QB competition

Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops wants to see more consistency from his three young quarterbacks who are trying to replace four-year starter Landry Jones.

The Sooners will play their spring game Saturday on Owen Field, providing perhaps the only public glimpse into the quarterback competition between Blake Bell, Kendal Thompson and Trevor Knight.

Stoops says all three are doing a good job, and what he's looking for is the ability to avoid big mistakes. He says the Sooners will have enough talent around whoever wins the starter's job that there's no need to gamble with the football.

Traditionally, Stoops has not named his starting quarterback during spring practice, preferring instead to carry the competition over into two-a-days and training camp.
