Red/White Game Articles and Notes

Oklahoma Sooner Football Articles and Notes



Franks impresses: Saturday, Dominique Franks picked off two passes, one of which he returned 42 yards for a touchdown. "Dom's really come along great," coach Bob Stoops said. "He's a guy that has a great feel and a knack in the secondary and I thought he played really well." (The Oklahoman)

Landry Jones has work todo: Saturday's Red/White Game played to mixed reviews, particularly for Landry Jones, Oklahoma's freshman backup to Heisman winner Sam Bradford. "I thought Landry made some mistakes that will really hurt you over the course of a game," position coach Josh Heupel said. "He stepped up and made some plays as well. That's kind of the growth pattern of a young quarterback. The biggest thing for a young quarterback is finding a way not to beat you," Heupel said. "And (Jones) did some things today that would have helped get us beat." (Tulsa World)

Ratterree separates shoulder: The Sooners were without several key players but came out of the game with only one injury. Tight end Trent Ratterree, who caught four passes early, separated his shoulder. But Stoops said he didn't think the injury was too serious and expects Ratterree to be back before fall camp. (The Oklahoman)
