JENNI CARLSON COMMENTARY — If this was indeed Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones final game in the crimson and cream, it couldn't have ended like he wanted it to. He got his head smashed, his receivers kept getting hurt and his backup was named the game's offensive MVP. But if Jones returns, he's in for a big season because of the experience he's gained.

GRADING THE SOONERS — The Belldozer formation, the Sooners' senior defenders and Tress Way's punting were among the bright spots in Oklahoma's 31-14 victory over Iowa in the Insight Bowl. If this was Landry Jones' OU finale, it wasn't memorable.
