Dunn earns Pac-12 honors again

Utah kick returner Reggie Dunn picked up Pac-12 honors for the second week in a row as he was named the Special Teams Player of the Week following his performance Saturday in which he logged another 100-yard return.

Dunn's return was his third in two weeks. He is the first player in NCAA history to have two 100-yard kickoff returns in a game and four in a career. He also set the NCAA kick return average in a game (74.0 on three returns vs. Cal) and tied the record for kick returns from any distance in a game with his two against Cal.

Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said Monday the Utes need to get the ball into Dunn's hands more and was surprised Washington State allowed him a chance to return the ball.

"I didn't think they would kick it to him last week and they did," he said. "They have to certainly think twice about it," he said of Washington.

Dunn is averaging 55.4 yards on his returns, which would lead the nation, but he has just seven attempts which isn't enough to give him the qualifying minimum of 1.2 per game to be eligible for the category.
