Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week Monday for his performance in the Wildcats’ 42-16 upset win over Oregon on Saturday.
Carey, a junior from Tucson, carried the ball a school-record 48 times in the game, totaling 206 yards and four touchdowns. He currently leads the nation in running at 155.9 yards per game.
The 5-foot-10 running back also set school career marks during Saturday’s game with 3,913 rushing yards and 49 total touchdowns during his time in Tucson.
This is the second time this season Carey was named one of the conference’s players of the week, the first was for his play in Arizona’s win over Utah on Oct. 19. It’s the fifth time a Wildcat has been honored by the Pac-12 Conference this season.
Arizona State’s Chris Young was named the Defensive Player of the Week, while UCLA’s Ishmael Smith earned Special Teams Player of the Week honors, both for their play in the Sun Devils’ 38-33 win in Pasadena.
