Redshirt freshman free safety Tevin McDonald has been named the Bank of the West Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week after his impressive three interception performance against Cal, the conference announced on Monday.
McDonald, from Fresno, Calif., had three interceptions in UCLA's 31-14 win over California. The three interceptions tied the school single-game record, and McDonald became the fifth player to accomplish the feat. Rahim Moore had the last three-interception game for the Bruins in 2009 against San Diego State. McDonald also tied the Pac-12 freshman record with three picks in one game. He added three tackles as well during the game.
Washington's Chris Polk received the offensive honor, while Stanford's Eric Whitaker took home special team honors.
