If Oklahoma is to knock rival Oklahoma State out of the BCS picture, it’ll have to do so without its starting quarterback.
At the end of the first half, Trevor Knight was knocked out of bounds by an Oklahoma State defender near the goal line on a third-down play. Almost immediately, Knight was taken into the locker room for further evaluation of an unspecified injury.
Shortly before kickoff of the second half, OU announced that Knight would not return for the remainder of the game. The program has not specified the nature of the injury, although local radio reports have the player standing on the sidelines with his arm in a sling.
With Knight out, head coach Bob Stoops turned to Kendal Thompson. The sophomore promptly tossed an interception of the Sooners’ first play from scrimmage of the third quarter, which the Cowboys converted into a touchdown that pushed their lead to 17-10.
