Heading into this week's game I was pretty sure that we would not be seeing a Colorado player win a player of the week honor this season. I'm very happy to be wrong on this one as quarterback Jordan Webb has be named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week for his gritty performance against the Washington St. Cougars. Congrats, Jordan!
Quarterback Jordan Webb of COLORADO, linebacker Jordan Clay of OREGON and punter Keith Kostol of OREGON STATE have been named Pac-12 Players of the Week in football.
Webb, a junior from Union, Mo., completed 29 of 42 passes for 345 yards and two touchdowns and added a pair of rushing scores in a 35-34 come-from-behind victory over Washington State. Colorado trailed 31-14 midway through the fourth quarter, but Webb and the offense racked up 255 yards of offense and three touchdowns in the final frame to complete the comeback. Webb picked up 19 first downs (3 rushing, 16 passing) and compiled a 149.0 passer rating on the afternoon. He called his own number and scored the deciding touchdown on a four-yard plunge on fourth and goal with nine seconds left in the game to help the Buffaloes to their first win of the season.
Buffs linebacker Jon Major was also nominated on the defensive side of the ball.
