Terry Wilson did plenty of good too and Danny Clark isn’t far behind when it comes to game situation performance.

Mark Stoops says he’s confident in whoever wins the job; a competition that will be ongoing this fall and maybe take through the first game of the season on September 1 against Central Michigan.

There’s so much to be excited about with A.J. Rose’s Blue-White game performance back on Friday night everyone has something positive to say about the redshirt sophomore’s outing.

Offensive coordinator Eddie Gran chimed in on Rose’s rampage (11 rushes for 134 yards and 3 scores) by saying it’s all starting to come together and it’s one good showing after another.

Hear from Stoops on the quarterbacks and Gran on Rose in the video.
