Oklahoma rotated five wide receivers against Kansas State. Ryan Broyles was on the field most of the game, while Kenny Stills, Trey Franks, Jaz Reynolds and Dejuan Miller shared time.
Broyles had a monster game (14 catches). Reynolds had two touchdown catches each, Broyles and Miller one each.
“We tried to play as many guys as we could and expend as much energy with these guys as we could,” said wide receivers coach Jay Norvell. “I was real proud of Dejuan Miller. He hasn't been playing as much and made a couple of big plays. The catches that Jaz Reynolds made were incredible.
“It shows what guys are capable of when they get opportunities. We just need those guys to continue to help us. ”
BACK IN NATIONAL TITLE HUNT?
The Sooners got some help with Georgia Tech defeating Clemson. They almost received additional help before Stanford escaped USC's upset bid in triple overtime.
“We're just worried about winning next week,” said OU coach Bob Stoops. “You guys (in the media) can do all that (analyzing) you want.”
JONES HAS RECORD DAY
OU quarterback Landry Jones had a record day, throwing for 505 yards and five touchdowns in the Sooners' win over Kansas State. Jones also passed Sam Bradford for most OU career touchdown passes (88).
“Going 35 of 47 for 505, five TDs on the road, that's a day now,” Stoops said. “Landry the whole time was throwing the ball well. He had 250 or so (yards) at half. We were confident he would continue to throw it well.”
The only negative was that Jones threw two interceptions.
“The first pick, that's the receiver's fault,” Stoops said. “He was trusting the receiver to come back to the football on a comeback route. Worst case they're contesting or fighting for it. The other one he just underthrew it.”
