Oregon State tailback Jacquizz Rodgers, California linebacker Zack Follett and USC kicker David Buehler are the Pac-10 players of the week.

Rodgers, a freshman from Richmond, Texas, rushed 30 times for 133 yards and added five receptions for 55 yards in the Beavers' win over Arizona State. This is his second player of the week honor this season.

Follett, a senior from Clovis, Calif., posted 11 tackles -- eight solo -- including three tackles for loss and one quarterback sack in the Bears' 26-16 win over Oregon. The Ducks entered the game averaging 41.5 points and 475 yards per game, but the Cal limited them to 290 yards and just 4 of 18 on third-down conversions.

In USC's 56-0 win against Washington, Buehler, a senior from Anaheim, Calif., was a perfect 8-8 on PATs and seven of his nine kickoffs forced the Huskies to take touchbacks.

Also nominated for offensive honors were Stanford running back Toby Gerhart and USC wide receiver Patrick Turner. Also nominated on defense were Oregon State end Victor Butler, USC linebacker Rey Maualuga and safeties T.J. Ward of Oregon and Troy Nolan of Arizona State.
