Jaguars’ ‘Flight Crew’ looking for open skies tonight

(Continued)

NORMAN —

“We knew they were a big powerhouse and it would be a good game,” Lookout said. “We just kind of went in a little bit scared. This time we’re ready for them.”

On the season, Green, Lookout and Dyer have combined for 101 receptions and 15 touchdowns. They will be looking to exploit a defense that has 14 interceptions and 37 sacks.

“They are a good defense,” Lookout said. “They are not the best, but they are pretty good. All we have to do is do what we do and we’ll beat them. This game is real big. All the coaches want it. All the players want it. We are excited to be here. But this is not as far as we want to get. We want to get as far as we can.”

For that to happen, Green said the they have to make plays in crucial moments against the Trojans.

“We have to make big plays on third down and fourth down,” Green said. “There can’t be any dropped balls. We have to catch the ball and get upfield.”

One of the reasons Westmoore is expecting to see a better output from the Flight Crew is due to the weather. The first matchup featured rain, cold temperatures and high winds. It will still be cold tonight, but the rest of the elements are expected to be fine.

“To win the game we’re going to need to put points on the board and move the ball,” Dyer said. “I believe with the weather conditions, we are going to do just that. Time for the Flight Crew to take off.”
