Oregon's Michael Clay Named Pac-12 Defensive Player Of The Week

The Oregon Ducks defense was the most dominant unit in the Pac-12 this past weekend, in a 49-0 shutout of the Arizona Wildcats. Despite Arizona's offense finding the red zone several times due to sustained drives or Oregon turnovers, the Wildcats failed to score a single point, with much of that effort coming due to great Oregon defensive intensity. Oregon held Arizona to 2.8 rushing yards per carry, forcing Matt Scott to throw 52 times. Oregon forced five Arizona turnovers, including two pick-sixes to help seal the victory.

Given that performance, it figures that Oregon's best defender received Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week honors. Michael Clay was bestowed with the honor after an excellent all-around performance. Clay had 13 tackles (10 solo), two of them coming for a loss, one sack and a forced fumble.

Jordan Webb of Colorado was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week, and Keith Kostol of Oregon State earned special teams honors.
