(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By JEFF LATZKE AP College Football Writer Heading into his senior season with No. 4 Oklahoma, there isn't much starting quarterback Landry Jones hasn't done.
He has started 37 games, thrown for more yards and touchdowns than any other Sooners quarterback and brought home a Big 12 championship and three bowl game victories. There's still one last bit of unfinished business and that's win a national championship.
Unlike Sam Bradford, Jason White and Josh Heupel since 2000, he hasn't even had the chance to play for one.
Jones skipped the chance to enter the NFL early to take one final crack at winning it all, and he'll start his pursuit Saturday night at UTEP.

NORMAN, Okla. — Quarterback Landry Jones took the podium after head coach Bob Stoops hosted his first weekly press conference for the 2012 season, and Sooners Illustrated has all the coverage.
No team can overcome losing its best wide receiver and best running back. With the loss of Ryan Broyles and Dominque Whaley last year, OU was doomed in its hunt for the national title. The fact that the Sooners still accomplished my worst case prediction in wins last year tells you how good OU could have been. Now, it's a new season and time to get back in the groove and prognosticate...

2011 was: not the greatest for Oklahoma standards. 10-3 is nothing to be upset about, but for what the Sooners expect, anything less than double-digit regular season wins and a BCS bowl...
NORMAN, Okla. - No one insulted his family or kicked his dog.
That might be what it takes these days to get Landry Jones to crack. Instead, the senior quarterback at Oklahoma slogged through another day in front of the recorders and the cameras, another 20 minutes of questions on everything from the NFL to the Big 12. He talked about offense, passing records and the Sooners'...
They say the only depth charts that matter are the ones in a coach's head. (And, yes, that's a lame cliché that actually isn't even a cliché anyone uses.)
Bob Stoops' approach to putting together the first and second lines bears that out. Even so, the release of a Sooners depth chart provides nice fodder for conversation and speculation. Let's do our part and...
Kickoff for the Oklahoma Sooners' 2012 season is finally just days away. OU expert Josh McCuistion of SoonerScoop.com joins Homerism for a podcast to take an in-depth look at some of the Crimson and Cream's biggest weaknesses heading into the fall.

The Big 12 has been through a few close encounters of implosion in the last 2 years but with the conference anchors Oklahoma and Texas staying put the league is ready to move forward. Let’s take a look at 5 things that you should expect to see in 2012.

Last year the top 3 teams were Oklahoma State, Kansas State, and...
A 10-win season and bowl victory would be considered a great year for most programs.
Oklahoma is not "most programs."
With quarterback Landry Jones back for a final season and coach Bob Stoops bringing his brother, Mike, back to rejuvenate the defense, the fourth-ranked Sooners kick off their season Saturday night in El Paso against UTEP - the team they faced to open...
