By David Ubben

The Big 12 has named its official players of the week for Week 13, as voted on by a media panel.

OFFENSE: Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma

Jones completed 46 of 71 passes for 500 yards and three touchdowns in a 51-48 overtime win over rival Oklahoma State. His completions and attempts were both career highs, and he became the Big 12's leading passer with 16,124 total yards in his four years as a starter. He's the only Sooner to ever throw for 500 yards, and he's done it three times, including each of his past two games. He's the first player in FBS history for have 26 touchdown passes and 3,000 yards in four different seasons.

DEFENSE: Eddie Lackey, LB, Baylor

Lackey picked off two Seth Doege passes and recovered a fumble inside the 10-yard line with the Bears trailing by 14 in their eventual 52-45 overtime win over Texas Tech. He returned his first interception 55 yards for a touchdown to give Baylor its first lead of the game early in the fourth quarter. He's the first BU player to have three takeaways in one game since Jordan Lake versus Buffalo on Sept. 22, 2007. The win helped Baylor become bowl eligible.

SPECIAL TEAMS: Jalen Saunders, PR, Oklahoma

Saunders returned a punt 81 yards in the fourth quarter to help tie the game in the Sooners' overtime win over Oklahoma State. He had 251 all-purpose yards and it was his first-ever punt return for a touchdown. His all-purpose performance was the sixth-highest in OU history by a receiver.
