Arizona quarterback Khalil Tate continues to impress.

Tate was named Pac-12 offensive player of the week on Monday, earning the honor for the third week in a row.

Tate is the first player to be named Pac-12/10 offensive player of the week three weeks in a row since USC quarterback Rodney Peete in 1988.

In a 45-44 double overtime win against Cal, Tate had 303 yards in total offense (137 rushing, 166 passing) and three total touchdowns.

During the last three games, all wins, Tate has rushed for 694 yards and seven touchdowns, while completing 76 percent of his passes (31-of-41) for 468 yards and four scores.

Arizona's Colin Schooler was named Pac-12 defensive player of the week after breaking up a potential game-winning two-point version pass by Cal in the second overtime. He had 15 tackles on the night.

Arizona State kicker Brandon Ruiz was the special teams player of the week after going 3-for-3 on field goals.
