Oklahoma Sooners vs. Texas Longhorns: Can Landry Jones Live Up to the Hype?

The Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns face off this Saturday in what has come to be known as the best rivalry in college football, the Red River Rivalry. The most recent era in this 100-plus yearlong border war started when Bob Stoops took over the reigns at Oklahoma in 1999, one year after Mack Brown did the same at Texas.

Since 1999, Stoops has the slight edge at 7-5.

There are several storylines leading into this year's installment:

Can Texas find its identity with an entire new coaching staff under Mack Brown following its 5-7 season? Who will fill the shoes of Oklahoma running back legend Demarco Murray?

Since those answers have been checked off, for the most part, I'll create a new headline.

Is Landry Jones as good as he has been hyped? Is he a true OU legend in the making, or is he simply a stat monster? Josh Heupel or Nate Hybl?
