Landry Jones

Oklahoma QB, Soph.

Last Week: 32-of-46 passing for 453 yards and four TDs; two rushes for four yards in 43-10 win over Colorado

Season: 227-of-338 passing for 2,547 yards, 21 TDs and five INTs

Before last weekend, Jones was the only one of the Big 12's top eight passers without a completion of at least 50 yards. He threw two in a performance that ranks only behind 2007 Heisman winner Sam Bradford (468 yards) in the Sooners' record book. Jones is now tied for second in FBS with 318.3 passing yards per game and that number could swell with none of Oklahoma's remaining opponents ranking better than 87th vs. the pass.

Next Up: Saturday at Texas A&M
