Keep­ing up with Jones

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

All eyes will be on QB Landry Jones, who started 10 games last sea­son in place of the in­jured Sam Brad­ford. The sopho­more threw far too many in­ter­cep­tions — a Big 12-worst 14 that in­cluded 10 in road games — but he also showed poise at times, threw for a school-record six TDs against Tulsa and had a great bowl game.

He won’t be helped by a void at re­ceiver — out­side of the proven and ex­plo­sive Ryan Broyles, who tied a school mark with 15 touch­downs last sea­son — and the lack of an ex­pe­ri­enced tight end. And if Jones slips up, will Stoops look to red­shirt fresh­man Drew Allen or first-year fresh­man Blake Bell, who has spent just two sea­sons at quar­ter­back af­ter play­ing de­fen­sive end like his un­cle did for 12 NFL sea­sons?
