Defensive Points + MVP's: Arizona

Who led the way for the Oregon State defense? Time to take a look at the defensive points and grades from the Arizona game.

The Oregon State defense came out and played another inspired football game, this time with the help of the offense. With both sides pulling their own weight, the defense was able to slow down Arizona's running attack and helped seal the 42-17 win for the Beavers second PAC 12 win of the season.

Senior linebacker Caleb Saulo led the way this week, earning his third Giant Killer Stone Award of the season.  Saulo forced a fumble and had a big sack to go along with his seven tackle game.  Fellow linebackers Manase HungaluKyle HaleyAndrzej Hughes-MurrayShemiah Unutoa-Whitson, and Titus Failauga added 22 tackles.

The defensive backs also had an active day with cornerback Xavier Crawford earning his fifth MVP honor of the season.  Crawford had seven tackles and an interception.  Dwayne WilliamsTreston DecoudBrandon Arnold, and Devin Chappell contributed 16 tackles, including a sack for Williams, who made his return to action after suffering a knee injury earlier in the season.

The defensive line was led by defensive end Phillip Napoleon who finished the game with four tackles. 

Congratulations to this week's MVP honorees.
