WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – UCLA freshman Myles Jack was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week, the conference office announced Monday afternoon.
Jack, a freshman from Bellevue, Wash., played on the offensive side of the ball for the first time this season, keying a 31-26 Bruin win over Arizona in Tucson on Saturday night. He rushed for 120 yards on six carries, including a 66-yard dash for a touchdown to extend UCLA’s lead late in the fourth quarter. Jack’s rushing total is tied for 10th on the all-time school freshman list while the 66-yard scamper is the fourth longest by a freshman in program history.
On defense, Jack had eight tackles, one tackle for a loss of two yards, two pass break-ups and recovered a fumble in the UCLA end zone as the Bruins won in Tucson for the first time since 2003. Jack is now tied for third on the team with a total of 62 tackles on the season along with five tackles for a loss of 11 yards.
UCLA will return home for a Friday night contest as the Bruins will welcome the Washington Huskies on Friday, Nov. 15. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. PT, at the Rose Bowl with the game slated to air on ESPN2.
