DALLAS – It's day two of the Big 12 Football Media Days and today the Oklahoma Sooners will have their turn to address the media about the upcoming season.

Landry Jones, Travis Lewis and Ryan Broyles all took an early morning flight to Dallas to join head coach Bob Stoops for the day's festivities.

The Sooners begin the day with a 40 minute session with national media members before talking with other TV and radio media.

Stay tuned to News 9  at 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. for a full wrap up of all the day's highlights from Dean Blevins in Dallas.

We are also following the Sooners throughout the day as they go through media day and will be posting comments below:

Travis Lewis: "If Texas can have their own network, I want mine—the Travis Lewis Network, we'll call is TLN."

Bob Stoops: The Longhorn Network will means they will need to change the recruiting policies....the handbook....or at least everyone has to recruit by same rules.

Landry Jones: I've been working on getting my feet & body in better position so I can be more accurate with my throws.

Ryan Broyles: I'm working on the mental part of my game and reading coverages. The best thing I'm at is finding my negatives & correcting them.

Travis Lewis: Team is young but we have the right amount of maturity. With the two games we lost last year, we know what it takes to be perfect.

Ryan Broyles: Winning every game is why I came to Oklahoma. I want to compete against the best guys in America every day.

Travis Lewis: We say a prayer before every workout and incorporate Austin's name into. We remember him in everything we do.

Bob Stoops: Gabe Ikard has really played well. He had a great spring. A great worker & helps the o-line in leadership he's a quick and agile guard.

Travis Lewis: We were ranked No. 1 some last year & then we played Missouri. The only time the No. 1 ranking matters is at the end of the year. We aren't satisfied knowing how good we should be. Rankings mean nothing to us.

Ryan Broyles: I was a knucklehead and felt like I knew everything as a freshman. I've grown up a lot and have a faith that sustains me.

Travis Lewis: Our goal every year is to win the national championship. Have a great team this year and I think we have a great chance this year.

Bob Stoops: "Experience translates -- in our program -- to playing sharp mentally on defense. When we've done that, we've been pretty good."
