IRVING, Texas – Oklahoma's Landry Jones and Jamell Fleming have garnered national attention and conference awards after a convincing 55-22 win over Texas.

Jones was named the Davey O'Brien Quarterback of the Week as well as the Big 12 Offensive Player of the week while Fleming was honored by the conference as well being named the Defensive Player of the Week.

Jones completed 31-of-50 passes for 367 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions in the Sooners 55-27 win over Texas.

On the defensive side of the ball Fleming recorded a career-high 13 tackles in the win along with a 56-yard fumble return for a touchdown.

The Sooner offense, led by Jones, took control of the game against Texas once and for all in the second quarter.

In the first four minutes of the second quarter, Jones had struck twice and given Oklahoma a 20-3 lead. With less than one minute still to play in the opening half, the junior led the offense down the field, tallied his third touchdown of the quarter and gave the Sooners a strong 34-10 lead. At halftime, he had already accumulated 305 yards.

Jones threw touchdowns for 19, five and 14 yards against the Longhorns and 11 of Fleming's tackles were unassisted while two went for losses. In Oklahoma's past three games, Jones has collected 1,240 passing yards and 11 touchdowns. He currently ranks second in the nation in total offense, averaging 363.2 yards per game.

The OU defense held Texas to 259 yards, 161.8 yards below its average.

"I'm proud of those guys as well and the job that they were able to do," said Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops. "It's a great win. To come down here in that situation, and to win like that is really pretty special."

Jones and the Sooners are now 5-0 on the season and ranked No. 1 in the Coaches Poll, a ranking they have held since the preseason.

Texas A&M cornerback Dustin Harris earned the conference's special teams player of the week honor after he blocked a 50-yard field goal attempt by Texas Tech to help the Aggies win 45-40.

The Sooners travel to take on Kansas Oct. 15 at 8:15 p.m.
