For the first time this season, Oregon Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota was named Pac-12 offensive player of the week Monday.
The honor comes after the former St. Louis Crusader accounted for seven total touchdowns in a 57-16 rout against Colorado.
Mariota was 16-of-27 passing for a career-high 355 yards and five touchdowns against the Buffaloes.
He also ran seven times for 43 yards and two touchdowns.
The number-two Ducks will face their biggest test of the year Saturday when they visit 16th-ranked Washington.
