Quarterback Sean Mannion and defensive end Scott Crichton of Oregon State have been named the offensive and defensive Pac-12 Players of the Week.
Mannion, a freshman from Pleasanton, Calif., passed for 376 yards and four touchdowns, both career highs, in the 44-21 win over Washington State.
His four touchdown performance was the most for a Beaver quarterback since 2009.
For the game he completed 26 of 34 attempts (76.5 percent) with one interception.
Mannion is on pace to throw for 3,367 yards, which would be an Oregon State record for a freshman and the third-highest single-season total in program history.
Crichton, a redshirt freshman from Tacoma, Wash., tied for a team-high with seven tackles, including two tackles for loss and one sack.
He also had a pass breakup and forced two fumbles.
Crichton has already tied the OSU record for forced fumbles in a season with four.
He is in a tie for 17th in the NCAA and co-leads the Pac-12 with 10 tackles for loss this season.
