The Arizona Wildcats may have committed the cardinal sin, losing the Territorial Cup to the Arizona State Sun Devils last weekend, but if there’s anything positive to take from from it, it’s the latest announcement from Pro Football Focus: linebacker Colin Schooler was named to PFF’s Pac-12 Team of the Week.
The true freshman led all Pac-12 linebackers with a 87.0 grade.

In his effort against ASU, School recorded 13 tackles, including one sack and two tackles for a loss.
Schooler was the only Wildcat to be named to PFF’s Pac-12 Team of the Week for Week 13.
Schooler has proven to be an essential component to the Wildcats’ defense this season. The true freshman led the ‘Cats in total tackles for a loss with 13.5, and is second in sacks with four.
Schooler also recorded a 66-yard interception return for a touchdown in Arizona’s win over Washington State on Oct. 28.
