Can FSU's D get it done?
By Heather Dinich
According to ESPN's Stats & Information crew, Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones' interceptions have contributed to the Sooners' well-documented struggles on the road.
Jones has thrown 15 of his 26 interceptions on the road, and he'll face a very stingy Florida State defense with the home-field advantage on Saturday. This is a much better defense than the one that faced Oklahoma last year, but the first two wins have come against inferior opponents.
Once again, the unofficial Stoops Bowl will determine the outcome of this game, as FSU defensive coordinator Mark Stoops matches wits with his brother, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops.
If Florida State is going to win this game, it's fair to say the defense will have to play the larger role in getting it done.
