Utah, San Diego State, Colorado State claim Player of Week awards
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Utah's Alex Smith and Josh Savage joined San Diego State's Jeff Webb and Colorado State's Dexter Wynn in winning Mountain West Conference player of the week honors Monday.
Smith was named the co-offensive player with Webb. Savage claimed the defensive honor, while Wynn won the special teams award for the fourth time in his career.
Smith, Utah's sophomore quarterback, completed 25 of 38 passes for 340 yards and two touchdowns in the Utes' 17-13 come-from-behind upset Friday over then-No. 19 Oregon.
In three starts this season for Utah (4-1, 1-0 MWC), Smith has 86 pass attempts without an interception. He is also unbeaten.
Savage, Utah's defensive end, was honored for pressuring Oregon's quarterbacks. The senior had seven tackles, three for loss, a sack and three pass breakups.
Webb, a sophomore receiver, posted a 10-catch, 253-yard game Saturday in the Aztecs' 44-36 home loss to BYU. In recording the third-best receiving game in MWC history, Webb caught touchdown passes of 70, 24 and 55 yards for San Diego State (3-3, 0-1).
Wynn, a senior who won the special teams award in each of the last three seasons, had 120 total return yards on six kicks Saturday in Colorado State's 34-10 victory over Fresno State. Two of those returns led to touchdowns for the Rams (3-3, 0-1).
