Following Arizona State’s 42-23 victory over UCLA on Saturday, two Sun Devils’ earned player of the week honors from the conference.

Quarterback Jayden Daniels was named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week and offensive lineman LaDarius Henderson earned Pac-12 Offensive Lineman of the Week.

Daniels was efficient Saturday night in Pasadena, completing 13 of his 19 pass attempts. He threw for 286 yards through the air and found wide receiver Ricky Pearsall for two big touchdown plays.

As for Henderson, the Sun Devils offensive lineman was instrumental to ASU’s rushing attack, as well as keeping Daniels clean in the pocket.

ASU ran for a total of 177 yards and had three scores on the ground against the Bruins. Three different Sun Devils ball carriers had over 45 yards rushing, including Daniels.

Pass protection was on point for Henderson and the rest of the Sun Devils offensive line too, as UCLA didn’t register a sack on Daniels.
