Arizona State Sun Devils running back Rachaad White won the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week honor, while two Arizona Wildcats were tabbed for the weekly awards handed out after Week 10.

Arizona punter Kyle Ostendorp earned the special teams nod, and teammate Kyon Barrs took home the defensive line award for the week.

White rushed for a career-best 202 yards on 28 touches, scoring three times in a 31-16 win against USC. He accounted for 56% of Arizona State’s 427 total yards with 237 all-purpose yards.

The running back is the second Sun Devil to win Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week. Quarterback Jayden Daniels did so on Oct. 2 for his play in a win against the UCLA Bruins.

For the Wildcats, Ostendorp punted seven times in a 10-3 victory for his team on Saturday, averaging 50.1 yards per boot. Four of those punts were downed inside the 20, while three made it inside the 10-yard line. The sophomore is averaging the fifth-best mark in the nation of 48.2 yards per punt this year.

Barrs, also a sophomore, posted 2.5 sacks with three tackles for loss.

He played a role on the interior for an Arizona defense that held Cal to 1.2 yards per carry and 122 total yards.
