Trio of Ducks Honored by Pac-12

Throckmorton, who earned the offensive lineman of the week honor for the second time in the last three weeks, finished as the highest-graded offensive lineman in the Pac-12 by Pro Football Focus. The senior did not allow a hit, hurry or pressure over his 58 snaps played.
