Landry Jones outplayed Christian Ponder by
throwing for 380 yards and four touchdowns, and No. 10 Oklahoma
moved past a shaky season opener with a 47-17 victory against No.
17 Florida State on Saturday.
A rematch of the 2001 Orange Bowl that brought home the Sooners'
most recent national championship quickly turned into a blowout as
Oklahoma (2-0) scored touchdowns on its first four possessions.
Jones did much of his damage with short, swing passes and
screens near the line of scrimmage before striking down field for
scores. He completed 14 straight passes at one point, starting at
the end of the Sooners' opening drive and continuing past when he'd
pushed the lead to 27-7 with his third touchdown pass.
Ponder was just 11 for 28 for 113 yards with interceptions on
back-to-back throws in the third quarter for Florida State (1-1).
