Landry Jones, Sooners face more road tests

NORMAN — If Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones could play every game at Owen Field, he might be a first-team All-American.

Unfortunately for Jones and the Sooners, that isn't the case.

Saturday, Jones blistered Colorado in perhaps his finest home outing yet, completing 32 of 46 passes for a career-high 453 yards and four touchdowns.

But if OU is to win the Big 12 South and keep its slim national championship hopes alive, Jones must carry some of that over to College Station, to Waco and to Stillwater. A three-game road gauntlet where the Sooners will have little margin for error.

At home, Jones has proven he's capable of putting up huge numbers while also taking care of the ball.

In OU's last four home games, Jones has completed 73 percent of his passes and tossed 12 touchdowns with no interceptions. An almost flawless stat line.

"He's a great quarterback," coach Bob Stoops said Saturday night when asked about Jones' sparkling performance. "He's more than just pretty good."

At home, Jones has been great.

On the road, well, only pretty good.

For the Sooners to survive Texas A&M, then Baylor, then Oklahoma State, Jones will have to be better than he was in Columbia — OU's only true road test so far (Cincinnati at Paul Brown Stadium technically was a neutral site).
