Landry Jones

QB Oklahoma, Jr.

Last Week: 30 of 40 passing for 380 yards, 4 TDs; 4 rushes for minus-1 yard in 47-17 win over Florida State
Season: 47 of 76 passing for 597 yards, 6 TDs, 2 INTs; 7 rushes for minus-32 yards

He bounced back after struggling against Utah State in the opener, stealing the show in a duel with Florida State's Christian Ponder as Jones racked up 321 first-half yards to go along with three touchdowns. With the Seminoles focused on stopping DeMarco Murray, Jones picked the Seminoles apart with 31 of his 40 passes on screen plays or short routes, completing 14 straight passes at one point. Now, can we get him to bring back the `stache?

Next Up: Saturday vs. Air Force
