Ducks And Beavers Dominate Pac-12 Weekly Awards

EUGENE — Kayvon Thibodeaux has swept the Pac-12 Defensive Player and Defensive Lineman of the Week awards and Noah Sewell has repeated as the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week, the league office announced on Monday.

Oregon State running back B.J. Baylor, tight end Luke Musgrave and offensive lineman Nous Keobounnam have also been recognized by the Pac-12 in the conference’s weekly awards.

Thibodeaux is the second player in the conference this season to win multiple awards in the same week. USC’s Jackson Dart was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player and Freshman of the Week on Sept. 20. Thibodeaux is the third different Duck this season to earn the Defensive Player of the Week, and the first UO defensive lineman to win the honor since Nick Reed in 2007.

Sewell joins Utah’s Cameron Rising (Offensive, Oct. 11 – Oct. 18) as the only players in the league to win a Pac-12 honor in back-to-back weeks this season.

The Ducks have now won 11 weekly conference awards this season, the most in the league. Oregon has had at least one winner six of the first eight weeks, with multiple winners on three different occasions.

Oregon State’s Baylor is the conference’s Offensive Player of the Week, Musgrave has been named Special Teams Player of the Week and Keobounnam is its Offensive Lineman of the Week.

It is the first time three Beavers have been recognized in the same week since Oct. 16, 2006 when Sammie Stroughter (offense), Derrick Doggett (defense) and Alexis Serna (special teams) were all recognized after a 27-17 win over Washington.

Baylor is the Offensive Player of the Week for the second time this season. He finished with 152 rushing yards against Utah, becoming the first player to hit the century mark against the Utes this season. His 68-yard rush in the second quarter is the Beavers’ longest play from scrimmage this season. He also scored his 10th rushing touchdown of the season, and eighth at home.

Musgrave has been recognized by the Pac-12 for the first time in his career. The Bend native blocked a Utah punt in the third quarter. He scooped up the loose ball and ran it in for a 27-yard touchdown that put the Beavers up 28-24. The score marked the first touchdown of his career. He is the first Beaver to receive the special teams honor this season.

Keobounnam, a Portland native, has also been recognized for the first time in his career. He was part of an offensive line that paved the way for 260 rushing yards against Utah, making the Beavers the first Pac-12 team to rush for 200 or more against the Utes since 2018. Keobounnam joins fellow lineman Nathan Eldridge as Offensive Lineman of the Week selections this season.

Oregon State is back in action Saturday when visiting California in Berkeley. Kickoff is slated for 4 p.m. PT on the Pac-12 Network.
