Arizona Wildcats running back Ka’Deem Carey is the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week for the second time this season.
Carey rushed a school-record 48 times against fifth-ranked Oregon, gaining 206 yards and scoring four touchdowns. Along the way, he set Arizona records for career rushing (3,913), career rushing touchdowns (45) and career total touchdowns (49).
This is the third weekly conference honor for Carey in his career.
He won the award earlier this season after carrying 39 times for 232 yards in a 35-24 win over Utah. His 2012 award came after he set the Pac-12 single-game rushing record with 366 yards against Colorado.
Other nominated this week included:
– ASU quarterback Taylor Kelly, who accounted for 324 total yards — 225 passing and 99 rushing — as the Devils won at UCLA to clinch the Pac-12 South.
– Washington running back Bishop Sankey, who ran for 179 yards and three touchdown on 23 carries in a rout at Oregon State.
– Stanford receiver Ty Montgomery, who scored the first four times he touched the ball in a win over Cal. He had five receptions for 160 yards and four touchdowns, also scoring on a 31-yard run.
Arizona State linebacker Chris Young won the Defensive Player of the Week Award.
