When Oklahoma gets close to the end zone, the man known as the "Belldozer" takes over for Landry Jones.

On Tuesday, coach Bob Stoops announced that his goal-line QB, Blake Bell, had beat out junior Drew Allen for the backup quarterback job, making Bell the top candidate to take over for Jones in 2013.

"Drew has done a real good job and made great improvement," Stoops told the Oklahoman. "I just feel Blake has been more consistent overall and playing the way we need him to."

Bell scored 13 touchdowns over the final six games of last season and will resume his role as the Belldozer in 2012. It was his improvement as a passer that may have won him the job, as he completed 14 of 19 passes for 179 yards and a touchdown in an impressive performance in the spring game.
