Oct. 17, 2005

Senior quarterback Drew Olson (Piedmont, CA/Piedmont HS) of the UCLA Football Team was selected as the UCLA/MET-Rx Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of Oct. 10-16.

Olson led UCLA to another fourth quarter comeback to preserve the Bruins' perfect record (6-0), throwing a school record-tying five touchdown passes in a 44-41 overtime win at Washington State. Olson completed 31 of 43 passes for a career-high 338 yards. In the final three quarters, he hit on 28 of 34 passes (.824) for 310 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions. In the fourth quarter, he connected on 13 of 16 passes for 132 yards and two scores. Olson rallied the Bruins from deficits of 21 points in the first half and 17 points in the fourth quarter, tying school records in both categories.

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