 TUCSON, Ariz. – University of Arizona redshirt sophomore receiver Cayleb Jones is the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week, it was announced by the league office on Monday.

On a closing-second Hail Mary TD reception, Arizona rallied back from a 22-point deficit to defeat the California Golden Bears, 49-45, Saturday night at Arizona Stadium. The Wildcats moved to 4-0 for the first time in head coach Rich Rodriguez's tenure and 1-0 in Pac-12 play. UA is now 20-10 under Rodriguez in 3+ seasons.

Jones, in just his fourth game as a Wildcat, finished with 13 receptions for 186 yards and three touchdowns. Jones' 13 receptions, No. 5 nationally, are second-most in UA single game history and the most in a game since 1996.

His 186 receiving yards (No. 13 nationally) rank No. 12 in single-game history. Jones tied seven other players with three receiving TDs as single-game school record and is tied for the NCAA lead in the category.

Jones had nine catches for 127 yards and three touchdowns in the second half alone and hauled in five catches for 59 yards and two scores in the fourth quarter. Nine of Jones' 13 receptions resulted in a first down or touchdown.

On the season, Jones totals 29 catches for 475 yards (No. 5 nationally)and six touchdowns (second nationally), leading the heralded Wildcat receiving corps. He averages 118.8 yards per game (No. 9 nationally) and 16.4 yards per catch. His touchdown receptions have been catches of 85, 22, 24, 41, 16 and 15 yards for an average of 33.8 yards per score.

After a bye week, Arizona will play its first Pac-12 road contest at Oregon on Thurs, Oct. 2. Slated for 7:30 p.m. MST, the game will be televised by ESPN and carried on the Arizona IMG Sports Radio Network.
