Schooler had six tackles, including three tackles for loss and two sacks, receiving a grade of 86.1 by the folks at PFF.
Boles, a transfer from Boise State, had a career-high seven tackles (one for loss), and received a stellar grade of 92.1.
Boles played so well he actually made PFF’s National Team of the Week, too — Arizona’s first defensive player to do that this season.

Boles and Schooler helped Arizona limit Oregon State to just 3.7 yards per carry. The newcomers have helped lead an improved defensive unit in Tucson this year.
Despite scoring 49 points, the Wildcats did not have any offensive players on PFF’s Pac-12 Team of the Week.
