Kansas State Defense Focused On Stopping Oklahoma QB Landry Jones

Saturday's game against No. 6 Oklahoma will arguably be the toughest test for the Kansas State defense all season, when they are charged with the task of stopping Landry Jones. In his last game against the Wildcats, Jones racked up more than 500 yards and five touchdowns through the air as the Sooners easily won 58-17.

Now No. 15 K-State is looking to avoid a similar result in a clash of two top Big 12 teams on Saturday.

"Landry Jones is a very, very talented young quarterback with great experience," Wildcats head coach Bill Snyder told the Kansas City Star. "You have to get pressure on him. We've been better the first couple ballgames than we were perhaps a year ago. But this is a level up in regards to how they protect him and how quickly he can get the ball off and move around in the pocket and avoid the rush. It's all got to work together."

Jones has drawn criticism throughout his career at OU for his propensity to throw interceptions and make big mistakes. That's something that K-State will look to take advantage of.

"For us, it's really going to be about disguising our defenses so Landry Jones doesn't know what defense we are in," backup cornerback Dante Barnett told the KC Star. "We want to try and trick him."
