With the Washington Huskies dominating performance over the Washington State Cougars this past weekend in the Apple Cup, the Pac-12 league office took positive notice.
Sophomore outside linebacker Joe Tryon was named the Pac-12 Defensive Lineman of The Week for his four total tackles, including two-and-a-half for loss and two sacks, good for 19 yards in losses.
True Freshman defensive back Trent McDuffie was named the Pac-12 Freshman of The Week as he finished with two tackles, a forced fumble and an interception.
DEFENSIVE LINE: Joe Tryon, So., DL, Washington (Renton, Wash.)
• Led the UW defensive effort that limited Washington State to just one touchdown, 13 points and 339 yards of total offense in Washington’s 31-13 win over the Cougars in the Apple Cup.
• Tryon finished the game with four total tackles, including two-and-a-half for loss and two sacks, good for 19 yards in losses.
• Over the last four games of the season, Tryon has compiled 10 tackles for loss and six sacks.
FRESHMAN: Trent McDuffie, Fr., DB, Washington (Westminster, Calif.)
• McDuffie, who started his 10th game as a true freshman DB in the Huskies’ 31-13 win over Washington State in the Apple Cup, had what may have been the key play in the game — if not two of them.
• In the fourth quarter, with the UW up 28-13 and WSU all the way down to the Husky nine-yard line, McDuffie forced a fumble (recovered by UW) to end the threat. After the Huskies punted, the Cougars moved across midfield on the next drive as well, before McDuffie intercepted QB Anthony Gordon at the UW 31 and returned it 29 yards. The Huskies made a field goal on the ensuing drive to make it a three-score margin late in the fourth quarter.
• For the game, McDuffie finished with two tackles, a forced fumble and an interception.
