The awards keep on pouring in for Ka'Deem Carey.

Arizona's junior running back was named the Maxwell Award Player of the Week this morning for his performance against Utah. The Maxwell Award is given to the nation's most outstanding college football player at the end of the season.

Carey rushed for 232 yards and a touchdown on a school-record 39 carries against the Utes and he's been recognized several times for it.

On Monday, Carey was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week for the first time this season. Then yesterday, Carey was announced as the winner of the Las Vegas Bowl Player of the Week. 

Carey, who is on the Maxwell Award watch list, leads the nation in rushing yards per game at 161.The Maxwell Award will announce the semifinalists for the award next week. Arizona's All-American back is likely to be included.

Carey and the Wildcats travel to Colorado on Saturday for a 5 p.m., kickoff. The game will be televised by Pac-12 Arizona.
