Brown Named Davey O'Brien Award National Quarterback of the Week
FORT WORTH, Texas — The Davey O'Brien Award announced Oregon senior Anthony Brown as its national quarterback of the week on Wednesday morning after Brown led the Ducks to a historic win at No. 3 Ohio State last Saturday.
The Pac-12's leader in total offense through two weeks, Brown accounted for more than 300 yards of offense and two touchdowns against the Buckeyes. He finished 17-of-35 passing for 236 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for 65 yards on 10 carries.
With Brown at the helm, Oregon's offense amassed 505 yards of total offense, becoming just the second team since 2000 and first since 2012 to eclipse 500 yards of offense vs. the Buckeyes in Ohio Stadium.
Brown and the Ducks – who are up to No. 4 in the AP and coaches polls – return home to Autzen Stadium this week to host Stony Brook on Saturday at 4:40 p.m. PT (Pac-12 Network).
