This morning our very own Chip Patterson wrote about how Oklahoma 's secondary -- which had quite a bit of trouble against lowly Utah State last week -- was going to have its hands full with Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder . Turns out that it's the Seminoles secondary that has its hands full, it's legs full, and just about every part of their body full with the Sooners offense.
Landry Jones is lighting it up. Jones completed 22 of his 28 pass attempts for 321 yards and three touchdowns in the first half as the Sooners have built a 34-7 lead over the Seminoles. DeMarco Murray has accounted for the rest of the Sooners offense, scoring two touchdowns even if he is only averaging two yards a carry in the first half (10 carries, 20 yards).
How's the Oklahoma secondary doing?
Well, Ponder has only completed 47% (8/17) of his passes in the first half for 80 yards and no touchdowns, so I'd say the Sooner secondary is holding up quite qell.
Keep in mind, though, that the Sooners had a 21-0 lead over Utah State last week before barely holding on to win 31-24. So there is still some hope on the Seminoles sideline. Okay, who am I kidding? This one's done.
