We already knew Arizona Wildcats quarterback Khalil Tate was on a historic tear.
But this is something — Tate became the first player of the Pac-12 era to be named player of the week in after three consecutive games. In fact, he’s the first player from the conference to take the award three straight times since 1988, when USC’s Rodney Peete posted a similar string of high-octane performances.
By the way: Khalil Tate is the first player IN THE PAC-12 to win the offensive POW award three weeks in a row in nearly 30 years.

Needless to say, his latest performance definitely merited the historic consideration.
The sophmore paced the Wildcats to a double-overtime win over Cal, 45-44, on Saturday. He tallied 303 yards of total offense with three touchdowns while posting yet another 100-yard rushing game. With his arm, he completed 10-of-15 passes for 166 yards.
Time to take a bow, Khalil.
