Masoli Named National Player of the Week

The Ducks jumped four spots in the USA Today coaches poll to No. 8, and three positions in the AP top 25 to No. 7. Oregon was 10th in last week’s BCS rankings, which will be updated later this afternoon.

Oregon junior quarterback Jeremiah Masoli has been named the national offensive player of the week by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

Masoli ran for a season-high 164 yards and passed for 222 more, totaling 386 yards of offense in UO’s 47-20 victory over then-No. 4 USC. He also rushed for one score and threw another.

Over his past four games, Masoli has a quarterback rating of 156.91, completing nearly 71 percent of his pass attemps with six touchdowns through the air against zero interceptions. During that span he has four rushing touchdowns and is averaging 260 yards of total offense.

Masoli is the second Duck to receive the weekly honor his season. Ed Dickson earned the award in Week 4.
