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

EUGENE, Ore. — Oregon center Jackson Powers-Johnson has been selected as the Pac-12 Offensive Lineman of the Week for his performance in the Ducks’ 42-6 win over Colorado, the conference office announced on Monday.

Powers-Johnson led the Ducks with four knockdowns and earned an 83.0 pass-blocking grade from Pro Football Focus while allowing zero pressures in 37 pass-blocking opportunities. He helped the Ducks rack up 522 total yards against the Buffaloes, including 240 rushing yards.

On the season, Powers-Johnson leads Oregon with 14 total knockdowns and ranks third among all FBS centers with an 88.4 pass-blocking grade from PFF. He is also third among centers with an 82.6 run-blocking grade, and fourth with an 84.1 overall grade.

This is the first Pac-12 weekly award for Powers-Johnson. He becomes the second Duck to be honored by the conference this season, after quarterback Bo Nix was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week following Oregon’s win over Texas Tech.
