NORMAN, Okla. – As training camp began at Oklahoma, quarterback Landry Jones had only one receiver present who had ever caught one of his passes before in a game.
That hasn't kept one of the NCAA's most productive passers ever from another prolific season.
Plugging transfers and freshmen into the lineup, the 14th-ranked Sooners (8-2, 6-1 Big 12) are averaging 334 yards passing. That puts them eighth in the nation, even though four other teams from the pass-happy Big 12 are in front of them.
Coach Bob Stoops says he's seen development over the course of the year, with Jones becoming comfortable with all of his receivers. On Saturday night, he set a school record with 554 yards passing in a wild 50-49 win at West Virginia.
The Sooners host No. 22 Oklahoma State (7-3, 5-2) in the Bedlam rivalry game Saturday.
