Arizona’s Tate makes history

Arizona quarterback Khalil Tate was named Pac-12 offensive player of the week on Monday, become the first player in conference history to earn the award four weeks in a row.

In a 58-37 win against Washington State, Tate had 421 yards in total offense and three touchdowns, including a career-long run of 82 yards.

Since taking over as Arizona’s quarterback during the first quarter of a game at Colorado on Oct. 7, Tate has led the Wildcats to a 4-0 record.

Stanford’s Harrison Phillips was named the defensive player of the week and Arizona kicker Lucas Havrisik was named the special teams player of the week.
