ASU's Jayden Daniels earns Pac-12 Offensive & Freshman Player of the Week honors
Nov 25, 2019
Arizona State quarterback Jayden Daniels was named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week and Pac-12 Freshman of the Week after throwing for 408 yards and three touchdowns in ASU's 31-28 upset of sixth-ranked Oregon. Daniels' 57-yard touchdown strike to junior wide receiver Frank Darby in the first quarter passed Rudy Carpenter's single-season school record for most passing yards by a true freshman quarterback (2,273 yards) set in 2005. Daniels is the first Sun Devil to pass for over 400 yards since Mike Bercovici did it against West Virginia in the 2016 Cactus Bowl.
