Colorado senior cornerback Travis Sandersfeld has been named this week's Pac-12 defensive player of the week for his final home performance against the Arizona Wildcats. This is just more good news to come out of Saturday's victory. 

Sandersfeld, a senior from Limon, Colo., played all 76 snaps at nickel back in Colorado's 48-29 win over Arizona. He tallied 14 tackles, 11 of which were solo. His three tackles for loss totaled 13 yards, including a sack for nine yards. Sandersfeld also added an interception as the Buffaloes picked up their first Pac-12 victory.

Running back Rodney Stewart was nominated for the offensive award due to his 181 yard, 4 touchdown (one coming on a pass to quarterback Tyler Hansen) performance, but the honor instead went to Washington State freshman quarterback Connor Halliday who threw for 494 yards and four touchdowns in a 37-27 victory over Arizona State.
