Oregon St. quarterback Sean Mannion was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week, after throwing a school record 6 touchdowns in the Beavers' 44-17 win Saturday over Colorado. It was the second time this season Mannion has received the conference's weekly honor, along with 2 weeks ago, after leading Oregon St.'s win in overtime at Utah.

Mannion has now thrown 21 touchdown passes this season, to lead the nation, and his 414 passing yards against Colorado elevated his FBS leading total to 2,018, and an FBS leading average per game of over 390 yards.

Mannion was selected over Arizona St's Marion Grice, who had 4 touchdowns, Washington RB Bishop Sankey, who had 161 yards on 40 carries in the Huskies win over Arizona, Oregon RB Brandon Marshall, who filled in for an injured De'Anthony Thomas, and rolled up 130 yards and 2 scores on 19 carries, and USC RB Justin Davis, who ran for 122 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Arizona St. safety Alden Darby was named the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week, after getting 2 interceptions and also causing a fumble, and recovering another, in the Sun Devils win over USC.

Oregon's Bralon Addison was named the Pac-12 Special Teams Player of the Week, after returning a pair of punts for touchdowns in the Ducks' 55-16 route of Califoria.
