Arizona running back Keola Antolin, Oregon State safety Greg Laybourn and UCLA kicker Kai Forbath have been named Pac-10 players of the week.
Antolin, a freshman from Las Vegas, rushed 21 times for 149 yards (7.1 yards per carry) with three touchdowns and added a reception for nine yards and had four kickoff returns for 79 yards, giving him 237 all-purpose yards.
Laybourn, a senior from Portland, led the Beavers' defensive effort in a 34-13 win at Washington. He posted a game-high 12 tackles, including 10 solo stops. The OSU defense forced four turnovers.
Forbath, a sophomore from Pacific Palisades, Calif., scored 11 of UCLA's 23 points in the Bruins' 23-20 win against Stanford. He was 3-for-3 on field goal attempts, connecting from 37, 19 and 28 yards, and made both of his PAT attempts.
This marks the second player of the week honors this year for both Laybourn and Forbath.

Also nominated on defense were cornerbacks Devin Ross of Arizona, Alterraun Verner of UCLA and Josh Pinkard of USC.
