The Associated Press
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Trevor Knight and Oklahoma have another chance to knock off a Southeastern Conference team.
Oklahoma's sophomore quarterback, best known for his MVP performance in the Sugar Bowl win over Alabama, will face Tennessee on Saturday night. It will be Knight's first real test since ripping Alabama for 348 yards and four touchdowns in January.
This season, Knight has completed 59 percent of his passes for 552 yards and three touchdowns in two games. Sterling Shepard has 12 catches for 226 yards and two scores.
Tennessee has allowed per-game averages of 13 points and 260 yards in wins over Utah State and Arkansas State. Volunteers coach Butch Davis said this challenge is much more difficult, largely because of Knight.
Tennessee counters with Justin Worley, who already has five touchdown passes.
