The Big 12 has named its Players of the Week for Week 9.

OFFENSE

Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma: Jones threw for a school-record 505 yards on 35-of-47 passing in a 58-17 win against Kansas State. He also threw for five touchdowns and helped OU rack up the most yards of offense (690) for the program since 1978. Jones also moved past Sam Bradford for the school record in career touchdown passes, with 90.

DEFENSE

E.J. Gaines, CB, Missouri: Gaines made a career-high 10 tackles and broke up a career-high four passes, including three in the fourth quarter of a 38-31 overtime win against Texas A&M. The Aggies' offense scored just three second-half points, and Missouri rallied from a 28-14 deficit.

SPECIAL TEAMS

Justin Tucker, K, Texas: Tucker made two field goals, including a 52-yarder, and five PATs in Texas' 43-0 win against Kansas. He punted just once and pinned Kansas at its 12-yard line. He's the first Texas player to win any player of the week award this season.
