Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones thinks the Sooners are still in the national championship race, although he acknowledges he'll have to play better for them to have a chance.
Jones has accepted most of the blame for No. 16 Oklahoma's 24-19 home loss to Kansas State on Saturday, after he fumbled to give the Wildcats one touchdown and threw a momentum-killing interception on another drive. He noted that in 2008, the Sooners played for the national title despite a midseason loss to Texas and that ''all our goals are still in front'' of Oklahoma this season.
Coach Bob Stoops says there is plenty of blame to spread around after the loss to Kansas State and Jones is just one of many Sooners who needs to improve.

College football fans are the best, aren’t they?
Our friend Jerod Morris of Midwest Sports Fans is doing a four-week college football road trip sponsored by La Quinta (which is sponsoring this post), and his first stop was in Norman last weekend to watch Oklahoma lose to Kansas State.
In his recap of the game, (and he has plenty of cool pics and videos for you to check out),...
After the Oklahoma Sooners’ 24-19 defeat to Kansas State on Saturday, I got to briefly revel in the awesomeness that is Collin Klein before finding myself in the position of defending OU quarterback Landry Jones. Midwest Sports Fans’ Jerod Morris took himself a road trip to Norman to watch the game and mentioned how some OU fans were calling for four-year starting senior Jones...
NORMAN, Okla. — Sooners Illustrated caught up with quarterback Landry Jones to get his thoughts on his struggles the other night and what has to change.
Landry Jones came back for his senior season with No. 6 Oklahoma in part because he wanted one last chance to chase a national championship.
That chance could already be in jeopardy, and Jones knows he's a big reason why.
John Hubert ran for 130 yards and a touchdown, Jarell Childs scored on a 1-yard fumble return off of one of Jones' two turnovers and No. 15 Kansas State...
NORMAN, Okla Late in the fourth quarter with Kansas State trying to run out the clock and get out of town, Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein gained 5 yards when he needed 3.
On the other side of the field, Oklahoma never quite did get what it needed from its quarterback.
So it goes this season for Oklahoma and its record-setting quarterback Landry Jones. So it went Saturday...
Oklahoma and Landry Jones- This seems to be a yearly thing for the Oklahoma Sooners. They come into the season highly rated but falter early in the season. This season that lost was to Kansas State (24-19). KSU is a very good team but still you are Oklahoma you shouldn’t lose these games especially at home. In fact this was Bob Stoop’s first lost at home to a ranked...
Landry Jones critical mistakes against the Kansas State Wildcats show the senior’s season hopes of a championship are just too far-reaching. Jones’ first turnover came near his own goal line, when he was hit by K-State’s Justin Tuggle which jarred free the ball allowing the Cats to pick up a 7-3 lead and most of the momentum for the rest of the game.Jones is not solely to...
Kansas State QB Collin Klein picked up 228 yards of total offense and absolutely s*** on the OU crowd with a late touchdown to defeat the Trash QB Sooners Landry Jones this Saturday night.
So tell me Sooners fans, is Oklahoma (2-1, 0-1 Big 12) better than Kansas State (4-0, 1-0) ? By the looks of Sofia Vergara’s boobs I would say no.
The first leg in my four-week college football road trip sponsored by La Quinta featured a lot of history.
Unfortunately for the 2012 Oklahoma Sooners and their fans, the history that was made on Saturday night was of the ignominious kind as the 6th-ranked Sooners lost 24-19 to the 15th-ranked Kansas State Wildcats.
How rare was Oklahoma’s whimper of a performance in front of...
Although the rankings told us that this game would be close, recent history would have suggested that No. 6 Oklahoma would win this match up and that the Sooners would win big. Oklahoma dominated the last five meetings, averaging wins of 22 points per game, including the 58-17 massacre in Manhattan, KS last year. But this is a different Wildcats team ...and a different Sooners...
After a bye week that hopefully has given key players in Joe Bergeron and Jordan Hicks an opportunity to heal from injuries, the days are counting down before Texas treks to Stillwater, Oklahoma and an early-conference showdown against Mike Gundy's Oklahoma State Cowboys.
Once upon a time this series was decidedly in favor of the (burnt) orange as Texas won games going away...
Dancing in the Ruins
We're in the same boat on the same sea, and we're sailing south on the same breeze.
After Oklahoma's loss to Kansas State on Saturday, the Sooners find themselves in the same position as USC with dwindling chances of winning a BCS title this season. (Dr. Saturday)
Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones takes the blame for the Sooners...
Matt Barkley has slipped back into the pack and Montee Ball has fallen off the board completely. Landry Jones? You can probably take him off the list, too. Same with Tyler Wilson.
All the preseason hype is pretty much out the window. The Heisman Trophy race starts now and it's about results, not hype.
Barkley could still climb back into the race, he's got the talent and...
We knew nothing substantial about Oklahoma after two games. Needless to say, the intel after the Kansas State game is not good.
*Sterling Shepard looks every bit like the star many folks thought he would be. Give Heupel some credit for putting him into the game to give Landry Jones two slot-like targets. He made plays when KSU tried to take away Kenny Stills...
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- John Hubert ran for 130 yards and a touchdown, Jarell Childs scooped up a fumble and returned it for a score and No. 15 Kansas State beat No. 6 Oklahoma 24-19 on Saturday night to avenge a wrenching loss from last season.
Collin Klein picked up 228 yards of total offense and ran for the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter in a solid performance that...
