Oklahoma vs Texas Notable Players

Not everything is new with the XFL. There are certainly a few notable player names that you’ll recognize:

Landry Jones (Dallas Renegades)

We’re sure this one sounds familiar. The longtime Pittsburgh Steelers backup QB earned the starting spot for the Renegades.

However, we may not see him play just yet – he suffered a knee injury during practice in January, and his status for Week 1 is still unknown.

“That’s what I’m shooting for,” QB @LandryJones12 said when asked if his injury recovery timetable would allow him to play on 2/9. “Shooting for Week 1, and then I think the worst-case scenario is Week 2.” #RaisingHell

Cardale Jones (D.C. Defenders)

We’ve got another Jones! Former Ohio State QB Cardale Jones takes the field for the Defenders.

He spent a bit of time in the NFL, but you probably remember him from the 2014 National Championship Game, where he led the Ohio State Buckeyes to a title after injuries to Braxton Miller and J.T. Barrett.

Former @OhioStateFB QB @CJ1two will be back in action this February for the @XFLDefenders 🔥

Who else is excited? ✋ pic.twitter.com/8LIDVNIitq

— XFL on FOX (@XFLonFOX) January 7, 2020

Kenny Robinson (St. Louis BattleHawks)

The XFL is also providing opportunity! After being dismissed from West Virginia due to an academic issue, Robinson opted to take his talents to the XFL instead of transferring. If all goes well, the NFL could be next.

He’s just a kid …

But @krob2__ is ready for the bright lights. 🌟😎#ForTheLoveOfFootball x #ClearedToEngage pic.twitter.com/IoaM2Zr6Ij

Aaron Murray (Tampa Bay Vipers)

Murray returns home to Tampa to lead the Vipers this season. This Florida-native is best known for his historical collegiate career with the Georgia Bulldogs. He leads the SEC career touchdown list, surpassing Peyton and Eli Manning.

Yeah, you read that right.

The @SEC career passing touchdown and yards leader will be back on the field this February for the @XFLVipers 🐍

You ready for the return of @aaronmurray11, @GeorgiaFootball fans? pic.twitter.com/wHGEqJ9y0f

— XFL on FOX (@XFLonFOX) January 8, 2020

A few other names you might recognize: Josh Johnson, Cameron Artis-Payne, Marquette King, Christine Michael, Jace Amaro, Matt McGloin, Sammie Coates, Taylor Heinicke, Donnell Pumphrey, KD Cannon, and Tyree Jackson.

Oklahoma vs Texas Coaches

You might even recognize some of the names on the sideline, too. Look out for these stars rocking khakis and a headset:

Bob Stoops (Dallas Renegades)

Ring a bell? Probably because he won 10 Big 12 titles and a National Championship during his 18-year career at Oklahoma.

Listen to Coach! 🎟 https://t.co/1DiwQzODxc https://t.co/RbSLffEOdU

June Jones (Houston Roughnecks)

Jones resume boasts previous experience coaching in the CFL and NFL, most notably his three-year tenure as head coach of the Atlanta Falcons.

He’s back in New York, but this time, the former Giants offensive coordinator is leading the Guardians.

Coach Gilbride understands the benefits of practicing inside @MetLifeStadium ahead of the home opener. #OnDuty
