It’s official: Myles Jack’s 120-yard outburst at Arizona was the conference’s best offensive performance.
The UCLA linebacker was named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week, likely the first time a defensive player has ever done so. It’s a remarkable feat for someone whose six carries on Saturday night were the first of his college career, but turning the final one into a 66-yard touchdown will do the trick.
He was even nominated for the conference’s defensive award for his eight tackles, one tackle for loss and two pass breakups.
Jack also earned himself a spot on the Paul Hornung Award Honor Roll, given to the most “oustanding, versatile” performances of the week.
Stanford linebacker Shayne Skov was the conference’s defensive player of the week, while USC’s Nelson Agholor won the special teams honor for his two punt return touchdowns at Cal.
