With the Washington Huskies dominating performance over the Oregon State Beavers this past weekend, the Pac-12 league office took positive notice.
Redshirt freshman Edefuan Ulofoshio was named the Pac-12 Defensive Player of The Week for his team leading 9 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks against the Beavers.
Sophomore outside linebacker Joe Tryon was named Pac-12 Defensive Lineman of The Week for his 7 tackles, 4 1/2 tackles for loss and 2 sacks against Oregon State.
DEFENSE: Edefuan Ulofoshio, R-Fr., LB, Washington (Anchorage, Alaska)
• Ulofoshio came off the bench to lead the Washington defense to a dominant performance in the Huskies’ 19-7 win at Oregon State.
• OSU entered the game averaging 33.6 points and 431.0 yards per game, but were limited to 7 points (which were actually scored by the OSU defense on a pick-six) and just 119 yards of total offense.
• Ulofoshio, mainly a special teamer prior to last Friday, entered the game with a total of 11 tackles (and no sacks or TFLs) on the season but, after an injury to a starting linebacker, filled the gap and led the Huskies with nine tackles in the game, including one and a half sacks for losses totaling 12 yards.
• In the second half of the game, Ulofoshio and the Dawgs defense limited the Beavers to just eight yards of total offense and no first downs as OSU went three-and-out five times.
DEFENSIVE LINE: Joe Tryon, So., DE, Washington (Renton, Wash.)
• Led a suffocating Husky pass rush Friday in the Huskies’ 19-7 win at Oregon State, finishing the game with seven total tackles, four-and-a-half tackles for loss (for 26 yards) and two sacks (for 18 yards).
• It marked the second week in a row that Tryon tallied two sacks in a game. He now ranks 3rd in the Pac-12 in sacks, and second in conference games.
• OSU entered the game averaging 33.6 points and 431.0 yards per game, but were limited to 7 points (which were actually scored by the OSU defense on a pick-six), just 119 yards of total offense and six first downs.
• In the second half of the game, Tryon and the Dawgs defense limited the Beavers to just eight yards of total offense and no first downs as OSU went three-and-out five times.
