Seniors have chance to go out in style



Some point to the two home losses this season as a blight. OU still has a chance to go undefeated away from Owen Field for the first time since 2000.

Off-the-field issues have been minimal for this team. Suspensions have been minimal.

“I think it was more the fact we decided to do what was right. This university gives us the opportunity to go to class and get an education and it all translates over into football,” said OU quarterback Landry Jones, who is part of that senior class. “I think it was just attention to detail and doing things right off the field.”

Whether or not these senior collect all the hardware some of their predecessors did, will play out over the rest of the regular season and the bowl game.

However, this is a group that fully understands playing at OU is a special experience. They cherished the ups and downs that came with it.

“This is going to be the last time I’m going to be able to walk out on that field and represent the OU jersey in front of the fans we have here. It’s going to be crazy,” senior defensive end David King said.
