QB Landry Jones

Oklahoma, Jr.

Last week: Idle

Season (nine games): 254-of-393 passing for 3,349 yards, 28 TDs and nine INTs; 17 rushes for 22 yards and two TDs.

There could be far worse matchups for Jones in his first games without All-America wide receiver Ryan Broyles at his side. Baylor ranks ninth in the Big 12 in total defense and just gave up 357 yards to Kansas' anemic offense. The opportunity is there, but the question is will he continue to put up the numbers we've come accustomed to? Jones' best and last chance to impress voters will come on Dec. 3 against Weeden and Oklahoma State, though in the meantime he can't afford to show any dip in production as he faces Robert Griffin III and Baylor and then Iowa State leading into the Bedlam Game.

Next up: Saturday at No. 25 Baylor
