UTEP secondary staying upbeat entering tough matchup with OU, Landry Jones
NORMAN — UTEP’s secondary faces a daunting challenge against No. 4 Oklahoma and quarterback Landry Jones.
But the Miner defensive backs remain confident entering Saturday’s season opener despite the tough matchup.
“This is a big step, Landry Jones, an NFL prospect, a big star,” safety DeShawn Grayson told the El Paso Times. “It’s exciting to go against those type of guys. Any competitor can’t fear the name of any university.”
Cornerback Drew Thomas said UTEP has experience against great quarterbacks; the Miners faced former Houston star signal caller Case Keenum five times over his illustrious career.
“This is like going against Houston’s Case Keenum last year, a Heisman candidate,” Thomas said.
