UA punter Kyle Dugandzic has been named the Pac-12 Conference's special teams player of the week for his performance in Saturday's 38-35 loss to Oregon State.
Dugandzic, a senior from Agoura, Calif., punted five times for 234 yards in the Wildcats' home loss; four of his punts landed inside the Beavers' 20-yard line. Dugandzic also booted a career-long 70-yard punt that pinned OSU at its own 5. He also earned player of the week awards from Arizona's coaches.
Dugandzic was one of three players honored today by the Pac-12. Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion was named offensive player of the week for his performance against Arizona. The sophomore completed 29 of 45 passes for a career-high 433 yards and three touchdowns. He led the Beavers on two fourth-quarter scoring drives, both of which gave the visitors the lead. His 10- yard pass to Connor Hamlett gave OSU a three-point lead with 1 minute 9 seconds remaining.
Arizona State defensive tackle Will Sutton was named the conference's defensive player of the week. He ranked up a career-high eight tackles and three sacks in the Sun Devils' 27-12 win at Cal.
