Each week, SoonerNation will rank Oklahoma’s top 10 performers of the season up to this point. The Sooners have a new No. 1 following a 30-13 defeat to Notre Dame.

1. S Tony Jefferson (Last week: No. 3): Once again, Jefferson led the Sooners in tackles, and nearly knocked Notre Dame QB Everett Golson out of the game with a vicious hit. Jefferson was OU’s best defensive player.

2. CB Aaron Colvin (1): Despite tight coverage, Colvin uncharacteristically allowed too many Notre Dame passes to be completed on him. Wasn’t his best night.
