Landry Jones Hopes To Make Kansas State Game Showcase For Oklahoma Career

When the No. 6 Oklahoma Sooners face the No. 15 Kansas State Wildcats it will be on a national stage that could vault OU into national title talks. It also presents a great opportunity for Sooners quarterback Landry Jones to silence his critics with all eyes on him.

In his fourth year as starter, Jones already holds team records for passing yards, completions and touchdowns, but has been unable to earn much respect with 42 career interceptions and underachieving Oklahoma teams. After appearances in the Sun Bowl, Fiesta Bowl and Insight Bowl in his three seasons as starter, Saturday's game is the perfect opportunity for Jones to prove he is worthy of Heisman consideration and that the Sooners are ready for national championship consideration.

Dave Miller of National Football Post thinks it's the perfect setup for Jones:

With K-State being the first tough battle of the season for OU, it's the perfect time for that extra work with receivers to pay off. Much has been made of Jones' struggles in the post-Broyles era, so Saturday night will present the perfect opportunity for the leader of the offense to show that the unit can get back to its prolific ways.
