OU, Baylor, OSU nab Big 12 weekly honors
By David Ubben
The Big 12 has named its players of the week, as voted on by a panel of media.
OFFENSE: Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma
Jones threw for a school-record 554 yards and six touchdowns in a 50-49 win over West Virginia, and his sixth touchdown pass of the day gave Oklahoma the win. He broke his own school record set a year ago against Kansas State, and moved into fifth place in the NCAA all-time passing yards record book. He's now the fifth consecutive West Virginia opponent to win Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week.
DEFENSE: Joe Williams, CB, Baylor
Williams intercepted then-Heisman frontrunner Collin Klein twice and made 11 tackles (nine solo) in Baylor's 52-24 upset of No. 1 Kansas State. His first ended what would have been a game-tying drive in the second quarter deep in Baylor territory.
SPECIAL TEAMS: Zack Craig, S, Oklahoma State
Craig blocked two punts and returned the second one 30 yards for a touchdown in Oklahoma State's 59-21 win over Texas Tech. It was the first time since 2010 OSU had blocked multiple punts in a game.
