Oct. 24, 2005

Olson set a school record by throwing six touchdown passes - two each to Maurice Drew and Marcedes Lewis and one each to Ryan Moya and Brandon Breazell - in the Bruins' 51-28 win over Oregon State. On the day, Olson completed 16 of 24 passes for 262 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions. He moved into second place on UCLA's career touchdown passes list, passing Tom Ramsey, and he moved into a tie for fourth on UCLA's single-season touchdown passes list with 21. Olson also set a school record with 11 touchdown passes in two consecutive games, breaking the previous record of eight. He has 13 in a three-game span, breaking Wayne Cook's record of 11, set in 1993. Olson was selected the Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Week and is one of four nominees for the Cingular Wireless/ABC Sports All-America Player of the Week.

This is Olson's fourth UCLA/MET-Rx Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and of his career.
