The Sooners came into the Superdome as 17-point underdogs against the powerful SEC opponent but came out with a mission. Give credit to the defense for forcing five Crimson Tide turnovers which resulted in 28 points for the Sooners, but the player that stood out was freshman quarterback Trevor Knight. His performance in the Sugar Bowl was beyond remarkable as he shredded the best defense in the nation for 348 yards and four touchdowns. The touchdowns were the most a Sooners quarterback has thrown in a bowl game in team history. Adding on to the fact that before the start of the Sugar Bowl, Knight only had 471 yards passing and five touchdowns the entire season.
Oh, and did I mention it was only Knight’s fifth career start? This is quite a remarkable game to add to the young quarterback’s resume.
I believe that the Sooners and Knight have a bright future after this win. They were not given much of a chance in this game, but they have proven they can hang and defeat the big name teams. They have a remarkable defense that has kept them in games and has really shined in the Sooners’ final two games. Knight has quite a collegiate career in front of him as he has three years of eligibility left. When the 2014 college football season begins, look out for Trevor Knight and the Oklahoma Sooners to make even more noise.
