After scoring seven total touchdowns during his Bearcats debut, Jones struggled to find success for most of the disappointing regular season.
Despite finishing with just a 3-9 record in Scott Satterfield’s first year, the Bearcats were able to pick up the first Big 12 win in program history.
Jones racked up 140 yards and one touchdown to help Cincinnati outlast Big 12 rival Houston 24-14 during the historic victory in November.
The Bearcats could replace Jones with Indiana transfer quarterback Brendan Sorsby or turn to junior Brady Lichtenberg under center in 2024!
