Q&A with Oklahoma’s winningest quarterback Landry Jones
On Oct. 13, Jones became the fourth quarterback to win three times at the Cotton Bowl, but the 63-21 rout of Oklahoma’s biggest rival, the Texas Longhorns, meant even more than making fourth on a list.
The victory gave Landry Jones his 33rd win in an Oklahoma jersey to become the Sooners winningest quarterback in program history.
Will certain OU-Texas moments always stick out to you?
“There will be certain things that will stick out. I’ll remember all the touchdown passes and all the tight competitive plays, the third-down completions. You remember those things and treasure them when you get older.”
What’s it like being 3-0 as a starter in the Cotton Bowl?
“That’s huge. That was one of the goals I remember setting in 2009. I said this to Whitney when we lost in 2009 that when I’m the starting quarterback I hope we never lose that game. It was one of the goals I wanted to do.
“At the end of my career, I’m thankful and I give all the glory to God for letting me play in this game and have success in it.”
Did you know Texas was in such a fragile state?
“We wanted to go out there and execute our game plan. You go into games and you want to play sound, tough, physical football.”
Oklahoma tweeted that Millard’s one play broke the Y button. Thoughts?
