Nov. 8, 2004

WALNUT CREEK, Calif.-- Arizona State University quarterback Andrew Walter has been named the U.S. Bank Pac-10 Co-Offensive Football Player of the Week, announced by the Pac-10 today. It marks the second time in three weeks Walter has been accorded Pac-10 offensive player of the week honors.

Walter, a graduate student from Grand Junction, Colo., led Arizona State to a last-second 34-31 win against Stanford and established a new Pac-10 career record for touchdown passes in the effort. Walter completed 28-of-42 passes (.667) for 415 yards and four touchdowns, covering 41, 52, 7 and 4 yards. His final touchdown pass was the game-winner coming with nine seconds remaining in the game. The four touchdown passes gave Walter 80 for his career as he surpassed the previous Pac-10 record of 77 by Hall of Famer John Elway of Stanford (1979-82). In addition to Pac-10 honors, Walter was named the National Offensive Player of the Week by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

Washington State running back Jerome Harrison, was named the other offensive player of the week.
