This is the first selection of an Oklahoma player this season.
Jones, a senior from Artesia, N.M., set a school record on Saturday against West Virginia when he threw for 554 yards. He held the previous record of 504 yard also, which he set in 2011 against Kansas State.
The senior quarterback also threw for six touchdowns — four of which fell into the arms of junior wide receiver Kenny Stills. Jones’ endzone throws tied a previous school record of six which Jones set against Tulsa in 2009.
Oklahoma’s winningest quarterback is now second in Big 12 history and fifth in NCAA history in career total offense with 15,262 yards. His 117 passing touchdowns place him second all-time in the Big 12 and sixth in the NCAA. On Saturday, his 500+ yards helped him pass the 3,000 passing yards in a season. This season, he has thrown for 3,245 yards and is now just the third quarterback in FBS history 3,000 passing yards in four different seasons along with Kellen Moore (Boise State) and Timmy Chang (Hawaii)
