Tate, Reid, Powell named Pac-12 players of week

Not much of a surprise, but Arizona quarterback Khalil Tate was named the Pac-12 offensive player of the week on Monday after his sensational game against Colorado last weekend.

Stanford’s Justin Reid was named defensive player of the week, and Washington State kicker Erik Powell the special teams player of the week.

Tate came off the bench and led Arizona to a 45-42 upset of CU. He set an FBS record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 327 and scored four touchdowns. He also completed 12 of 13 passes for 154 yards and a touchdown.

Reid had seven tackles, a game-changing tackle for loss and a game-clinching interception in Stanford’s 23-20 win at Utah.

Powell was honored for the second week in a row after going 4-for-4 on field goals and 3-for-3 on extra points. He had a career-best 52-yard field goal.
