OU notebook: Landry Jones earns Big 12 honors, again

Oklahoma freshman quarterback Landry Jones has only made five career starts. In two of those, he has earned Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week honors.

Jones earned the honor following his performance during a 42-30 victory over Kansas State.

This time, Jones shared the accolade with Texas Tech running back Baron Batch.

Jones completed 26 of 37 passes for 294 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions as OU put up its highest point total in a month and a half.

"Hopefully, some young receivers in high school are looking at that,” OU coach Bob Stoops said after Monday’s practice.

K-State’s Brandon Banks was named the league’s Special Teams Player of the Week after returning a kick for a touchdown against the Sooners.

Nebraska defensive tackle Jared Crick had 13 tackles and set a school record with five sacks in a 20-10 win over Baylor.

OU takes on Crick and the Cornhuskers this weekend.

WR CALEB DOING BETTER; OG SIMMONS OUT AGAIN
Wide receiver Brandon Caleb is feeling better after injuring his ankle early on in OU’s game with K-State, but his status for Saturday is still questionable.

"He’s coming around,” Stoops said.
