Nov 5, 2018
Oregon safety Ugochukwu Amadi is named Pac-12 Football Special Teams Player of the Week after giving Oregon a 7-0 lead against UCLA with a 56-yard punt return for a touchdown in the first quarter, which marked Oregon's first punt return for a touchdown since 2015 at Michigan State. He averaged 24.1 yards per punt return this season (eight returns), and four of his eight punt returns on the season have gone for over 20 yards while he is tied for the national lead with two returns of 50-plus yards. Amadi is the only FBS player in the nation with a punt return touchdown and a pick-six.
