NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Just in time for a showdown at Notre Dame, Number 14 Oklahoma has found itself a quarterback. In his first career start, Blake Bell — who lost the starting job during the preseason — passed for 413 yards and four touchdowns in his first start for Oklahoma and the Sooners beat Tulsa 51-20 yesterday. The Sooners are 13-0 against Tulsa as a ranked team and 7-0 against the Golden Hurricane since Bob Stoops became Oklahoma's coach in 1999.

In addition to Smith's 40 yards on 10 carries, J.W. Walsh completed 17 of 30 passes for 181 yards and a touchdown for the Cowboys, who scored on their first three possessions.
