James national player of the week
By ESPN.com staff
Oregon running back LaMichael James has been named the National Offensive Player of the Week by the the Walter Camp Football Foundation.
James rushed for 239 yards on 30 carries and a touchdown in the ninth-ranked Ducks 43-15 win over California on Thursday. It was James’ third consecutive 200-yard rushing effort for the Ducks.
James, the 2010 Doak Walker Award winner as the nation's best running back, also dislocated his elbow in that game and likely will be out at least a couple of weeks.
