Landry Jones has to be licking his chops thinking about how he can exploit a reeling Oklahoma State defense. The Sooners quarterback is the best one the Cowboys will face all season, and after watching how poorly his defense played against Kansas State, Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy has to be cringing over the prospect of what Jones is capable of.
Even after losing star running back Dominique Whaley and wide receiver Ryan Broyles to season-ending injuries, the Sooners’ offense still has the deadly combination of quality depth (with guys like Kenny Stills, Roy Finch and Jaz Reynolds) and the awesome right arm of Jones.
Plus, coordinator Brent Venables and his Sooners defense are starting to regain their swagger after the Texas Tech debacle. They held Ryan Tannehill and a talented Texas A&M offense in check for most of the game in OU’s 41-25 win over the Aggies.
Add those factors together, and Oklahoma State may leave Bedlam on the wrong side of the scoreboard yet again.
