Mannion named Pac-12 Offensive POW

SEAN MANNION

SEAN MANNION WAS named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week for his 400-plus yard performance in the win against Arizona.

Sean Mannion, a sophomore from Pleasanton, Calif., completed 29-45 passes for a career-high 433 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-35 win over Arizona.

Mannion shined brightest during a 10-play, 75-yard game-winning drive in which he went 6-6 -- connecting with five different receivers -- for 52 yards, including a nine-yard touchdown strike with 1:09 remaining that provided the winning margin on the road.

His 433-yard passing performance represents the fifth-highest single-game total in school history.

Mannion, who is the first sophomore team captain in the history of the program, has now thrown for career-highs in back-to-back games after racking up 379 passing yards against UCLA on Sept. 22.

Rashaad Reynolds of Oregon State was nominated for the weekly defensive POW but defensive tackle Will Sutton of Arizona State took home this week's honor. OSU punter Keith Kostol was also nominated for the special teams honor that went to Marquise Lee of USC this week.
