As has been the trend when it's happened in the past, whenever a player performs well enough to earn the Walter Camp Offensive Player of the Week, we at the Pac-12 blog take it a step further and grant him the highest honor -- the Pac-12 player of the week.
And that goes to Arizona quarterback Matt Scott for his performance in the Wildcats' 39-36 win over No. 9 USC on Saturday.
The senior quarterback was 27 of 50 for 369 yards and three touchdowns with one pick. He also rushed for 100 yards on 15 carries and scored on the ground.
It was the fifth time this season that Scott had tossed for more than 300 yards in a game and his 100 yards on the ground were a career high. He's the first Arizona quarterback to rush for at least 100 yards in a game since Ortege Jenkins had 104 yards on 11 carries in 2000.
Scott sprayed the ball to eight different receivers -- Austin Hill being the primary recipient with 10 catches for 259 yards -- and three different players caught touchdowns.
The Wildcats travel to UCLA this weekend for what now looks like one of the more interesting games of the entire season with both the Wildcats and Bruins in the thick of the South division title and Arizona on the verge of becoming bowl eligible.
