(Norman) - Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops says he hopes to see improvement from the offense this week when the third-ranked Sooners play Air Force.

But Stoops also says he isn't disappointed in what he saw Saturday night against North Carolina.

He says he felt good about a good part of the offense, especially the play of the offensive line and the running game.

Stoops says quarterback Nate Hybl was a bit conservative, but that's to be expected from someone making his first start.

He says he expects OU to be more aggressive throwing the ball downfield. The Sooners stuck mostly to the short passing game against North Carolina.
