Mariota, Murphy, Montgomery: A 3M kind of player-of-the-week vote

Oregon’s Marcus Mariota, Stanford’s Trent Murphy and the Cardinal’s Ty Montgomery are Pac-12 football players of the week. I went with the last two, but differed on the offensive award on my ballot (media are now doing the voting). Nothing against Mariota’s seven touchdowns against Colorado (five passing, two rushing), but I thought Connor Halliday’s effort for WSU against Cal — 521 yards, second on the school list — was more heroic, coming, as it did, with him nursing an undetermined injury on his left side.

Mariota was 16 of 27 for 355 yards. Murphy, the terrific outside linebacker, had two sacks, plus half a tackle for loss, and a deflection that led to an interception for Stanford. And Montgomery was a difference-maker, a no-brainer for the special-teams award, with 204 kickoff-return yards, including the game-opening 99-yard gallop for a touchdown.
