Tigers Fall Short in Comeback Bid
Norman, OK--A good Missouri team entered Norman knowing the Sooners rarely lose at home and have been especially tough since the program was resurrected under Bob Stoops in 1999. Today, the outcome was no different. The Sooner win in a game that in the end looks closer than it was. Two 4th quarter TD's by the Tigers brought them within distance of winning the game but the Sooners never broke and won the game, 30-21. The main point of interest that came out of the game is the long-term standing of Landry Jones as the starting QB for the Sooners. Jones threw two more INT's today and was again replaced by redshirt freshman QB Jordan Thomas. Thomas was 2 for 2 (41 yards) after he came in for Jones. The Sooners face Iowa St. next week and many in the Norman and Oklahoma City media feel a lesser opponent like ISU may be a good time for the team to give Jordan and chance to start a game to see how he does.
