WALNUT CREEK, Calif. --
Utah sophomore quarterback Travis Wilson, who on Sunday was named the Athlon Sports National Player of the Week, was recognized today as the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week. Wilson led Utah to a 20-13 win over BYU on Sept. 21 for Utah's fourth-straight win over its instate rival.
Wilson completed 24-of-35 passes (69%) for 273 yards and two touchdowns (no interceptions). His numbers included a 74-yard pass to Dres Anderson---Wilson's fifth pass play of more than 50 yards this season. With Utah holding a tenuous 13-6 lead to start the fourth quarter, Wilson engineered a 12-play, 79-yard drive that concluded with a 2-yard touchdown pass to Karl Williams and put the Utes up 20-6.
Wilson becomes Utah's first Pac-12 Player of the Week this season and he is the first to earn the offensive weekly award since the Utes joined the conference in 2011.
The Utes have a bye week before hosting UCLA on Thursday, Oct. 3 at 8:00 p.m. MT.
