Oregon St. cornerback Rashaad Reynolds admitted to being as mad as he had ever been in or over a football game in the first half of Saturday night's game at Washington St. Fortunately for the Beavers, and not so much so for the Cougars, Reynolds took out his frustrations with back to back 4th quarter interceptions of Connor Halliday, in the space of 4 Washinton St. pass plays, both of which led to short field touchdowns that turned what had been a close contest neither team had had more than a 7 point lead into a 45-24 Oregon St. lead in a matter of just over 4 minutes.
The 2 pics were the first of 4 the Beavers, who lead the Pac-12 with 12, grabbed in the game.
Reynolds also forced 2 fumbles, and had 6 tackles in Oregon St.'s 52-24 win, and as a result, was named the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week.
Quarterback Sean Mannion lost out to Oregon's Marcus Mariota for the conference Offensive Player of the Week honor. Mannion and Mariota are the only players named Player of the Week more than once this season, and have claimed the honor 4 of the last 5 weeks between them.
Utah kicker Andy Phillips was named the conference Special Teams Player of the Week, after making 2 field goals that amounted to the difference in the score in the Utes' 27-21 upset of Stanford.
