Mannion, Darby and Addison nail Pac-12 awards, and my ballot
Sean Mannion of Oregon State, Alden Darby of Arizona State and Bralon Addison of Oregon are the Pac-12 players of the week for offense, defense and special teams. Media are selecting the players this year, and my offensive vote went to Bishop Sankey of Washington for his 40 carries and 161 yards against Arizona on the strength of better opposition than Mannion faced, but Mannion won for his school-record six touchdown passes against Colorado, giving him 21 this year before the calendar hits October.
Darby had two interceptions, one for a key touchdown against USC, plus a forced fumble and fumble recovery, while Addison had a pair of punt returns for touchdowns.
