Trevor Knight’s eyes give away where he’s going with the football

Bob Stoops was asked a simple question at his Monday news conference a few days after the Sooners’ first loss of the season.

Does quarterback Trevor Knight tend to stare down his receivers?

“I’m not going to say that,” Stoops said. “I’m not going to sit here and detail every guy, what we’re talking to them about.”
