EUGENE — Safety Verone McKinley III and running back CJ Verdell each earned national honors on Tuesday for their performances in Oregon’s historic win at No. 3 Ohio State last weekend.
McKinley III – who helped seal the win with an interception late in the fourth quarter – was named the Bronko Nagurski national defensive player of the week by the Football Writers Association of America. As the weekly winner, McKinley III has been added to the watch list for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, which is awarded to the nation’s defensive player of the year.
Verdell – who powered the offense with 195 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns – was honored on Tuesday morning as the Maxwell Award player of the week, which is given to the player with the top overall performance on offense, defense, or special teams. The Maxwell Award is presented annually to college football’s most outstanding player.
It is yet another honor this week for Verdell, who has also been named the Pac-12 offensive player of the week, Reese’s Senior Bowl offensive player of the week, and Rose Bowl Pac-12 player of the week.
