Not only did Colorado earn a win on Saturday, oft-criticized quarterback Jordan Webb was further validated when he was named the Pac-12's offensive player of the week on Monday.
Webb completed 29-of-42 passes for 345 yard and two touchdowns and rushed for two more scores in Saturday's 35-34 victory at Washington State. The Cougars led by 17 in the fourth quarter before Webb led the then-winless Buffs to the unimaginable comeback. He rushed for the winning touchdown on fourth down with nine seconds left to give the Buffaloes just their third conference win since joining the Pac-12 last year.
Also winning conference awards were Oregon linebacker Jordan Clay, who recorded 13 tackles against Arizona, and Oregon State punter Keith Kostol, averaged 43.9 yards on seven punts and put four inside UCLA's 20-yard line in the Beavers' upset of No. 19 UCLA.
