Every Thursday, the SoonerNation staff will answer a roundtable question about OU football. Leave a comment or talk about it in our "There's Only One" forum.

Based on what we know right now, who will open the season as Oklahoma's starting quarterback?

• I keep hearing good things about Trevor Knight's chances of winning the starting job. Really good things. But right now, it's difficult for me to bet against Blake Bell. The Belldozer has more experience in the offense, more experience on the field, and a skill set that often gets overlooked. Bell can make all the throws, and his accuracy has really progressed over the last two years. As a proven thumper on the ground, he gives the Sooners a true dual-threat, too. Knight's future is bright in Norman. But the odds are against that future beginning this year.
