It was the Landry Jones and Ryan Broyles show again as the top-ranked Oklahoma Sooners remained unbeaten with a 38-28 win over the Missouri Tigers on Saturday night. All three of Jones' touchdown passes found the hands of Broyles, the last of which put it out of reach as the Tigers threatened.
Missouri jumped out to an early lead, outscoring the Sooners by a 14-10 margin in the first quarter while giving the No. 1 team in the land a momentary scare. But Oklahoma rattled off 21 unanswered points, turning a close game into a comfortable 31-14 lead heading into the final frame.
The Tigers cut the deficit to 10 on a Henry Josey touchdown midway through the fourth quarter, but that was as close as they'd get. Three minutes later, Jones hooked up with Broyles from four yards out, capping a seven play, 62-yard drive with a touchdown. James Franklin scored from one yard out with 30 seconds to go, but the Tigers ran out of time, falling to Oklahoma by a 38-28 margin.
Jones finished the day with 448 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Broyles caught 13 passes for 154 yards and three touchdowns. Jones also added a rushing touchdown, scoring from one yard out in the second quarter. Dominique Whaley led the way on the ground, carrying the ball 16 times for 68 yards and a score.
