Everything else you wrote makes me want to muck Q high, but he gave you a pretty big tell here. If it were a big pair, he would have likely kept his mouth shut, hoping you'd call. He was running his mouth to appear stronger, and induce your fold.
95% of the time, weak behavior means strong hand, and vice versa.
Up to you whether you want a coin flip to decide your tourney at this point, but I wouldn't have been worried about him having JJ+ based on the behavior you described. AI or fold.
