Oklahoma and Oklahoma State Continue Preparations

It's no secret that the University of Oklahoma has a bit of a quarterback competition on their hands between Trevor Knight and Baker Mayfield. Both quarterbacks provide their fair share of skill and experience, leaving Bob Stoops with a tough decision of who to choose. However, he is not completely opposed to running a two quarterback system.

Stoops says, "It doesn't matter to me as long as we are moving the ball. You know, so I think always you prefer to have one guy getting the majority of it all being the guy. But you know, that guy has to produce as well. So we will see where it goes. Their just all you can are more comfortable with their reads, where everyone's at. You can tell they did really good work all summer on things they did on their own. On their pass scale situations, their route running with their receiver. You just tell they are quicker and more comfortable with where they are looking for the spacing and the routes."

Knight threw for 2300 yards last season for 14 touchdowns. Baker Mayfield had to sit out last year due to transfer rules, but in his freshman year at Texas Tech, Mayfieild threw for very similar numbers with over 2300 yards and 12 TD's.

The Sooners aren't the only ones ironing out things for the upcoming season. Quarterback Mason Rudolph is expected to anchor the offensive for Oklahoma State. However, Coach Mike Gundy has noticed that the defense may have an advantage this season having practiced against such a wide variety of plays.

"The defense always has an advantage in my opinion. In spring ball and in preseason practice, they see the same formations and looks and calls and plays and snap count and routes and different things. So they have a little bit of a leg up. But offensively there's different things that our group can do with the different looks and things the way we have them to move the football. But they've got a little bit of an advantage, sure," says Gundy.

In 2014, Oklahoma State ranked just inside the Top 100 in total defense. OSU is picked to finish fourth in the Big 12 this year.
