Jones claims the honors after a career-high six tackles, including two tackles for loss, one pass breakup and one sack. He also had a game-breaking interception in the third quarter which he ran back for a 28-yard touchdown to give the Buckeyes a 26-21 lead.

Through three games, Jones has 11 tackles, for tackles for a loss, and three sacks, which is first among defensive tackles in the Big Ten.
