10:49 AM ET 09.23 | Landry Jones came back for his senior season with No. 6 Oklahoma in part because he wanted one last chance to chase a national championship. That chance could already be in jeopardy, and Jones knows he's a big reason why. John Hubert ran for 130 yards and a touchdown, Jarell Childs scored on a 1-yard fumble return off of one of Jones' two turnovers and No. 15 Kansas State beat the Sooners 24-19 on Saturday night. "I played pretty terrible," Jones said. "The majority of this game is in my hands. I didn't take care of the ball or make enough plays. This one is probably on me." Jones threw for 298 yards and a late touchdown to get Oklahoma (2-1, 0-1 Big 12) within five but also fumbled and threw an interception that allowed Kansas State (4-0, 1-0) to go ahead in the first place. Counterpart Collin Klein outplayed him by picking up 228 yards of total offense, running for the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter and then making the key plays to close it out. "In this game, typically, an offense goes and a team goes how a quarterback goes. That's just the nature of this game, how it's evolved through the years now. So there's a lot on my shoulders, but I definitely can handle it," Jones said. "But I must play better. I have to play better for us to be successful."

Errrr no...this is a team sport...you win or lose as a team. Now, LJ may have contributed more to the loss than others, but it's not ALL on him. Final score didn't say Kansas State 24 Landry Jones 19.

zer0U had no chance at the national title this year, far toooooo many holes. He should've taken the NFL money and ran. His stock is only going to go down. If these NFL guys were smart he'd go no quicker than the 3rd round. He's very immobile and gets feet happy anytime there's pressure. He still could be effective on a team w/ an outstanding line.

For that matter U$C's Barkley isn't worthy of being higher than a 3rd round pick either. No arm strength and not very mobile himself equals NOT MUCH SUCCESS POSSIBLE!

Just what is your definition of "Real Bad"???? Do you consider LSU's victory over Auburn, "Real Bad"??????

September 24, 2012  12:01 AM ET

Yes, OT.

LSU vs. Auburn was real bad.

LSU's win was bad but I believe it was a combination of Auburn playing at home, and having the best game they have played all year, and LSU coming in thinking this will be a cake walk. Also LSU has no discipline.

The FSU is playing I would not be surprised to see them in the NC game.

September 24, 2012  06:48 AM ET

Okie had no shot.

The Sooners are not a good football team right now. Sure we beat up on Florida Atlantic, but who hasn't? We have yet another bye, and it couldn't have come at a better time. Its hard being a Sooner fan in Alabama, Landry Jones isn't making it any easier.
