Sooners’ leading rusher has to leave game



“We changed the play and there was miscommunication between myself and Landry,” Ikard said. “I snapped it when I normally snap it, and nothing good came from that. That was a big drive for our team. On that first drive, we were really rolling, and it’s unfortunate that it happened.”

What was more perplexing was Jones was still trying to change the play when there was one second left on the play clock.

Ikard said that didn’t have an impact on when he snapped the ball.

First half hit: The Sooners had a chance to take the lead late in the first half, but a holding call on guard Bronson Irwin wiped a potential 4-yard touchdown run by Blake Bell off the scoreboard.

“We had it in the end zone, and again, it’s a judgment call, they call holding,” Stoops said. “Those are frustrating situations, but that’s the way it is. We didn’t get the calls.”

Jones moves all-time passing list: Jones threw for 356 yards and now has 14,387 for his career. The total passed Hawaii’s Colt Brennan for sixth in NCAA history.

Jones’s 35 completions also moved him past Texas’ Colt McCoy for third in Big 12 Conference history.
