Jones engineers game-winning drive vs. Mountaineers

(Continued)

MORGANTOWN, W.V. —

It didn’t come down to the team that had the ball last but it was pretty close.

The Sooners and Mountaineers combined for 1,440 yards of total offense with West Virginia accumulating 778 of it.

OU coach Bob Stoops could barely speak by the time the game ended. The game and cold he picked up on Friday had worn his voice down to a whisper.

“I am incredibly proud of the team to hold it together the way they did, and to come back,” he said. “Landry Jones, to lead those drives at the end of the game; such great precision, execution, throwing strikes, receivers making tough competitive catches — all of it together, really was just pleasing to come back and win a game away from home.”

The Sooners did it and will roll into next Saturday’s meeting with Oklahoma State with a hot offense, a three-game winning streak and bolstered chance of winning the Big 12 Conference, thanks to Kansas State’s loss to Baylor on Saturday.
