Arizona’s Khalil Tate is lone Pac-12 standout to make PFF College’s National Team of the Week

Week 6 brought us plenty of Pac-12 football action, but only one standout earned national recognition.

Arizona quarterback Khalil Tate was the conference’s lone star of the week to make Pro Football Focus College’s National Team of the Week.

Tate’s scintillating performance — 12-of-13 passing, 154 yards and 1 touchdown, and 14 rushes for an FBS-record 327 yards and 4 touchdowns — lifted Arizona to a stunning 45-42 win over Colorado on Saturday, the Wildcats’ 3rd victory of the season. Tate came off the bench in relief of starter Brandon Dawkins, who left the game after a late hit sent him out of the game with an injury. Tate’s longest run of the night was a 75-yard touchdown run, one of 3 scoring sprints for 47 or more yards on the night.

The Pac-12 team of the week featured Oregon linebacker Troy Dye, who was all over the field despite falling to Washington State, 33-10. Dye finished with 11 tackles and 1 forced fumble in the loss. Three Ducks — Dye, defensive lineman Jalen Jelks and cornerback Arrion Springs — made the team, even in defeat.

The full Pac-12 offensive and defensive teams of the week are below.
