Tough call between him and Solomon

Christian Petersen

There was no doubt that the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week would come from the Arizona Wildcats this week. Cayleb Jones gets the nod after his huge night against Cal.

Jones finished the night with 13 catches for 186 yards and three touchdowns, including two scores in the fourth quarter.

In the second half of Saturday night's game, the redshirt sophomore receiver had nine catches for 127 yards.

The Texas transfer is up to 475 receiving yards this season, good for fifth in the nation behind the likes of Amari Cooper, Kevin White, Nelson Spruce and Travin Dural. Anu Solomon is fifth nationally in passing yards now with 1,454 through Arizona's first four games.

Jones is also T-18 in receptions per game at 7.3. One of the guys he's tied with? His brother Isaiah Jones who plays for the now-ranked East Carolina Pirates.

Cayleb is also solo second in the nation in receiving TDs with six this season. Colorado's Nelson Spruce has 7.
