"We knew who we were, we knew what we were capable of," Jones said. "And we came out here and showed what we're capable of today."

Showing defenses won't be able to shut down OU's offense by just zoning in on Ryan Broyles, Jones completed passes to 10 different receivers.

And Jones' four touchdown passes also went to four different receivers: Broyles, Cameron Kenney, Hanna and Trent Ratterree.

"Honestly, I wasn't surprised he played well," offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson said. "Maybe surprised he didn't play well last week. But not surprised today."

When he exited the game early in the fourth quarter, Jones had completed 30 of 40 passes with only one mistake, a bizarre pass that slipped out of his hand and was ruled a fumble.

"It was a nice day for him outside of that one play," coach Bob Stoops said. "Landry is doing well. He is a sharp guy, I say it a lot, but he is a great worker, has a great attitude about improving, and wants to be coached.

"He's a young guy that's just going to get better."

If so, the Landry Jones bandwagon will fill up fast. The wondering will be over.

And the Sooners will have a quarterback capable of taking them to a title.
