Eric Kendricks, the UCLA linebacker who had 13 tackles in Saturday's 66-10 victory against the Arizona Wildcats, was named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week today.

Kendricks had seven tackles in the third quarter, and led a unit that held the Wildcats 296 below their season-long average of 553 yards per game.

Oregon running back Kenjon Barner won the offensive award after one of the great days in school history. He rushed for an Oregon-record 321 yards on 38 carries, scoring five touchdowns. His rushing yards were the fourth-most in Pac-12 history.

Reggie Dunn, Utah's kick returner, was named Pac-12 Special Teams Player of the Week after returning a kickoff 100 yards for a score Saturday. It was his third touchdown in his previous four attempts; he scored twice the week before.

No Arizona Wildcats were named as nominees.
