The Pac-12 announced on Monday that California quarterback Jared Goff was named the conference's Offensive Player of the Week, just minutes after announcing that senior point guard Tyrone Wallace was tapped as the men's basketball Pac-12 Player of the Week.
Goff threw for 453 yards, completing 26-of-37 passes in the Bears' 54-24 victory over Oregon State. Goff led Cal to bowl eligibility for the first time since 2011 by equaling his school-record six touchdown passes in regulation time -- which also ties for the most passes thrown by a quarterback in the nation this season. Goff became the second player in Pac-12 history to record over 3,000 passing yards in each of his first three seasons, the Pac-12 determined, and the sixth player in Pac-12 history to record three-3,000 yard campaigns.
Cal and Goff face off against rival Stanford in the 118th Big Game this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Stanford Stadium on FOX.
Wallace -- a senior point guard out of Bakersfield, Calif. -- put in a 20-point, six-rebound, nine-assist effort against Rice in Cal’s season-opener this past Friday.
The award is the fourth time in his career that Wallace has earned the honor, and the third straight year he's been recognized during the first week of the season. Last year, he posted 22 points and 10 rebounds in a win over Alcorn State, while he had 20 points and seven assists in an opening victory over Coppin State in 2013-14. Wallace also picked up the award in week four of the 2014-15 season.
Against the Owls, Wallace shot 9-of-12 from the floor, and his nine assists were a new career high, while he had just one turnover in 30 minutes on the floor.
Wallace and the Bears take to the court again tonight against UC Santa Barbara in Haas Pavilion. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. and the game will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
