The end result was an interception as Bell tried to hit wide receiver Sterling Shepard.
“I could have probably stuck with Trey a little bit in the flat there. He got open late,” Bell said. “I got back to my read and got out of the pocket. Me and Shep were on different pages there. I kept thinking he could keep coming. I don’t know if he stopped or not.”
Settling in: The win over Kansas left a lot to be desired. OU continued to struggle throwing the ball. Bell was an inefficient 15-for-25 for 131 yards. He did throw two touchdown passes against the fourth-down interception.
Nonetheless, Bell’s teammates thought the passing game progressed following the Texas loss.
“We definitely have areas that we need to improve in, but I feel like he was throwing the ball around pretty well today and he seemed comfortable,” Shepard said. “As long as we keep getting open for him, it’s just going to make him even more comfortable as we go on.”
