On Friday night, Jones quarterback David Cornwell threw for three touchdowns and ran for another in the Longhorns' 61-14 win over St. Mary.
Saturday, Cornwell had another big moment as he received his first Southeastern Conference offer during a visit to Auburn.
Along with the offer the Tigers extended during the visit, the junior has an offer from Indiana.
Cornwell has thrown for 1,151 yards and 13 touchdowns with just two interceptions through six games.
He said last week he hoped to be in Dallas for this weekend's Red River Rivalry game. Both the Sooners and Longhorns are recruiting Cornwell.
PIEDMONT OVERCOMES TURNOVERS
The first half wasn't good at all for Piedmont on Friday night against Elk City.
The Wildcats turned the ball over five times in the first half.
But Piedmont turned things around late in the first half, with the help of a big kick return from Kyle Owens, and came out with a 26-20 win despite six total turnovers.
The Elks had been trying a variety of different kickoffs after Tevin Mitchell returned the opening kick to near midfield.
This time, Elk City did a high onside kick. Owens snagged the ball and returned it to the Elk City 40. Piedmont's offense finally found a rhythm, scoring just before half.
“I felt like that turned the momentum around,” Piedmont coach Craig Church said.
Church was especially pleased with his defense.
“We got a lot of good play in the secondary,” Church said. “The defense really played well in the fourth quarter especially and when Elk City was in a position where they had to throw, our safeties kept making plays.”
Piedmont has a tough task this week, traveling to Clinton.
