STANFORD, Calif. - Chris Owusu was named the Pac-10 Conference's Special Teams Player of the Week today for his performance in Stanford's season-opening victory Saturday at Washington State, in which he returned three kickoffs for 143 yards (47.7 average).
Included among his returns was an 85-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the third quarter, which gave the Cardinal a 29-10 lead at the 10:52 mark. It marked the first kickoff return for a touchdown by a Stanford player since T.J. Rushing accomplished the feat against Notre Dame in 2005.
Owusu also caught a 63 yard touchdown pass from Andrew Luck in the second quarter, giving the Cardinal a 15-3 lead.
