Freshman place kicker Kai Forbath has been named the U.S. Bank Pac-10 Special Teams Player of the Week after a stellar performance against Oregon on Saturday. The All-American candidate drilled a 54-yard field goal in the first quarter of the game. He tacked on two more field goals (31 and 28 yards) and an extra point to score 10 of UCLA's 16 points. With the three field goals made in the game, Forbath upped his season total to 22 made, a new Pac-10 season record for field goals made by a freshman.
It was the second time this season Forbath has been honored for his special teams play.
Quarterback Alex Brink of Washington State and defensive end Lawrence Jackson of USC join Forbath as the U.S. Bank Pac-10 Football Players of the Week.
