NORMAN, Okla. Not even Bedlam could shake even a bit of emotion loose from Landry Jones Saturday night.
Not another 50-point performance or another late-game drive, the kind generally seen only in the backyard and little-boy dreams, stirred up any visible feelings.
So, certainly the passing yardage, now at four figures in the past two games alone, didn't really affect Jones...
With the end of the second half looming, the Oklahoma Sooners looked to drive down the field and tie the game at 24. Landry Jones moved the ball well and with the team on the 18 yard line, Jones looked towards receiver Kenny Stills in the end-zone. The ball went through the defenders hands and Stills was able to tip the ball to himself and make the catch.

Landry Jones wouldn't consider his career as Oklahoma's starting quarterback to be a mixed bag.
Entering his final home game Saturday night against No. 22 Oklahoma State (7-3, 5-2 Big 12), Jones chooses to focus on the highs he's experienced with the 14th-ranked Sooners (8-2, 6-1) and not the occasional fierce criticism he's endured.
Jones has won one Big 12 championship...
As training camp began at Oklahoma, quarterback Landry Jones had only one receiver present who had ever caught one of his passes before in a game.
That hasn't kept one of the NCAA's most productive passers ever from another prolific season.
Plugging transfers and freshmen into the lineup, the 14th-ranked Sooners (8-2, 6-1 Big 12) are averaging 334 yards passing. That puts...
NORMAN, Okla. — Sooner head coach Bob Stoops reacts to OU's 51-48 overtime Bedlam win, and Sooners Illustrated was on the scene.
NORMAN, Okla. — It’s been the biggest season of his career, but this was by far the biggest play of his unbelievable season, as running back Brennan Clay busted two tackles and sprinted into the end zone for a 51-48 Sooner walk-off overtime victory over Bedlam rival Oklahoma State Saturday at Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.
WOODBURY, N.Y. – Four-star Metuchen (N.J.) guard Dorian Miller gave his family an early Thanksgiving gift by announcing his decision to stay home and play for Rutgers. Miller’s family watched the announcement Tuesday from behind the cameras at MSG Varisty. His father, Jeremy, and brother, former Oklahoma receiver Dejuan Miller, discussed their thoughts on the decision.
In the aftermath of Bedlam, as Sooner players and faithful jumped in celebrated unity in Norman, it was easy to make sense of the insanity. The game came down to one series. One final push in overtime. Oklahoma State needed to keep Oklahoma out of the endzone, and they failed. The Sooners won another Bedlam classic – 51-48.
