Poll: Your Week 6 MVP?

October, 9, 2012
Usually when Ted and I huddle up on Sunday to recap the weekend and start making our picks for various awards, coming up with the Pac-12 player of the week is reasonably easy. There are always a couple of guys who shine and separate themselves from the pack.

This week was a little tougher, and we ultimately settled on Oregon State cornerback Jordan Poyer over four equally-deserving quarterbacks. But just because he was our player of the week, doesn't mean he was yours.


Who is your Week 6 MVP?

So as we close the book on Week 6 and start eyeballing Week 7, it's worth taking one more look back at the top Week 6 performances and asking who your MVP for the week was.

Your choices:

Matt Barkley, QB, USC: If a poised, bounce-back game was ever needed, it was this week. And Barkley delivered. After falling behind 14-0, he led his team back against Utah by completing 23 of 30 balls for 303 yards and three touchdowns without an interception.

Zach Maynard, QB, California: After his first interception, Maynard was lights out. He completed 25 of 30 passes for four touchdowns and 295 yards in helping the Bears end a three-game skid with a 43-17 win over UCLA.

Josh Nunes, QB, Stanford: In the face of extreme pessimism and adversity, Nunes rallied the Cardinal from a 14-point, fourth-quarter deficit to force overtime and an eventual Cardinal victory. He accounted for five touchdowns -- two in the air and three on the ground -- and threw for 360 yards on 21-of-34 passing.

Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State: A three-interception day will get you more than an honor from the Pac-12 blog. It also earns you the Walter Camp Defensive Player of the Week award. One of the finest defensive performances of the season to date.

Matt Scott, QB, Arizona: In a losing effort against Stanford, Scott put up, as Ted described it, "beastly numbers." He completed 45 of 69 passes for 491 yards and threw three touchdowns.
