Powers-Johnson Named Pac-12 Offensive Lineman of the Week

EUGENE, Ore. — Oregon center Jackson Powers-Johnson has been named the Pac-12 Offensive Lineman of the Week for the second time this season, the conference announced on Monday.

Powers-Johnson tied for the team lead with two knockdowns in Oregon’s 31-7 win over No. 16 Oregon State while earning an 81.2 pass-blocking grade from Pro Football Focus, allowing zero pressures in 42 opportunities. He also earned a 70.7 overall grade from PFF.

Powers-Johnson helped the Ducks rack up 480 total yards against the Beavers, including 367 passing yards. The Ducks did not allow a sack, and lead the nation this season with just five sacks allowed.

A semifinalist for the Outland Trophy – presented to the nation’s best interior lineman – Powers-Johnson leads all FBS centers this season with a 90.9 pass-blocking grade from PFF. He also ranks second among all centers in overall grade (81.7) and run-blocking grade (81.5).

This is the second Pac-12 Offensive Lineman of the Week award of the season for Powers-Johnson, who also earned the honor following Oregon’s win over Colorado.
