Oklahoma awards tracker: Week 8

October, 23, 2012
QB Landry Jones, Sr: Walter Camp, Manning, Maxwell
For the third straight game, Jones played like an elite quarterback going 19-of-28 for 291 yards and 3 touchdowns. He has 1 interception in the past three games.
Season stats: 133-of-212 for 1,644 yards, 12 TD, 3 INT

RB Dominique Whaley, Sr: Maxwell
The Sooners ran the ball 18 times against Kansas but Whaley didn’t touch the football.
Season stats: 38 carries for 241 yards, TD

WR Kenny Stills, Jr: Walter Camp, Maxwell
Stills set the tone with a 44-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter against Kansas. With the addition of Jalen Saunders, he has moved outside at times to provide an explosive option for Jones.
Season stats: 38 receptions for 471 yards, 4 TDs

LB Tom Wort, Jr: Butkus, Nagurski
For the second straight week, Wort forced a fumble. He finished second on the team with 7 tackles, including 2 tackles for loss and 1 sack against the Jayhawks.

C Gabe Ikard, Jr: Lombardi, Outland
