Utah has seven Pac-12 Players of the Week; next best team has just two
Utah, undefeated, has had an impressive run through five games. Looking at accolades, the Utes have been strong across all positions.
During the first week of the season, Utah's Justin Thomas took home Defensive Player of the Week. The following week, Gionni Paul got the same nod. Week three, Cory Butler-Byrd was honored as Special Teams Player of the Week. Then, both Travis Wilson and Tom Hackett grabbed honors for Offensive Player of the Week and Special Teams Player of the Week after defeating Oregon.
Last week, Devontae Booker earned Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week and Tom Hackett once more became Special Teams Player of the Week.
That's already seven “Players of the Week” awards in the Pac-12 for Utah; the Utes have played just five games in 2015. The next most represented team in conference: ASU, Washington and Cal are all tied with two.
