UW’s Shaq Thompson has been named the Pac-12 defensive player of the week for the second time this season.

Thompson’s 100-yard fumble return — the longest in school history — highlighted the Huskies’ 31-7 victory at Cal on Saturday. Thompson also had a game-high 11 tackles.

Thompson was also named the Pac-12 player of the week on Sept. 15 after scoring two defensive touchdowns in the Huskies’ victory over Illinois.
