As a kid growing up in the eastern Oklahoma town of Sallisaw, Steve Davis had two dreams. He wanted to be a Baptist minister, and he wanted to quarterback the Sooners. He achieved both of those dreams.
Next week in the AT&T Cotton Bowl, the Sooners and Aggies will meet for the 19th time in 20 seasons. While Texas A&M has made tremendous strides in its first year in the SEC, this is a series the Sooners have dominated.
When the No. 8 Sooners host No. 5 Notre Dame on Saturday at Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, Landry Jones has an opportunity to cement his legacy as one of the best QBs in OU history and create memories that could turn tat contempt into reverence.
In the history of OU football, few have had to weather the criticism Landry Jones has faced. The only player in the Bob Stoops era who can understand what Jones has gone through is former OU quarterback Nate Hybl.
