BYU and Utah State played roles in the Pac-12 Player of the Week selections, although there was not much the Aggies could do to prevent USC punter Kris Albarado's award-winning performance.
Utah quarterback Travis Wilson did exploit BYU's secondary, earning offensive honors in the Pac-12. Wilson completed 24 of 35 passes for 273 yards and two touchdowns in a 20-13 victory.
Albarado was vital to USC's 17-14 win over the Aggies, with five of his punts downed inside the 20-yard line - including two inside the 5.
Oregon State's Steven Nelson, the defensive award winner, is familiar to Utah fans. Having intercepted two of Wilson's passes last week, he returned an interception 16 yards for the winning touchdown in a 34-30 defeat of San Diego State.
