After a stellar performance against the Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday, Khalil Tate earned several national awards and was named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week.
The Arizona Wildcats quarterback also got a spot on Pro Football Focus’ Pac-12 Team of the Week with a grade of 92.9.

Tate ran for 327 yards on 14 carries, and was 12 for 13 for 154 yards and a touchdown through the air.
One reason why Tate was able to have so much success was because of Arizona’s offensive line which opened holes to run through and a clean pocket when Tate dropped back.
Relatedly, redshirt sophomore center Nathan Eldridge finds himself on Pro Football Focus’ Pac-12 Team of the Week, too, checking in with a grade of 82.6.
Eldridge has started in all five games this season after being named to the Rimington Trophy Watch List this offseason.
Unfortunately for Arizona’s defense, two Colorado players — running back Phillip Lindsay and wide receiver Bryce Bobo — also made PFF’s Pac-12 Team of the Week.
Lindsay had 41 carries for 281 yards and three touchdowns. Bobo had six catches for 53 yards and a touchdown.
