Another week and more Pac-12 Player of the Week honors for members of the Utah football team. Each week this season that the Utes have played they've had a player (or two) named Pac-12 Players of the Week. This week, it's Devontae Booker being named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the week, for his 222 rushing yards (267 all-purpose yards) and two touchdowns. Booker was borderline unstoppable against the Bears on Saturday night, as the Utes rode him to victory.

Joining Booker is Tom Hackett, as he's won his 2nd Pac-12 Special Teams Player of the Week award. He also picked up the award after the Oregon win. Hackett  averaged 50.8 yards on four punts for 203 yards. He placed two punts inside the 10-yard line. Cal's average starting field position following a punt was the 15-yard line. Hackett's final punt of the game for 51 yards was downed at the five-yard line, which helped the Utah defense finish the Bears.

These are Utah's sixth and seventh overall Pac-12 Player of the Week, following Justin Thomas (defense week one), Gionni Paul (defense week two), Cory Butler-Byrd (special teams week three), Tom Hackett (special teams week four), and Travis Wilson (offense week four).

Utah actually leads the Pac-12 with seven Pac-12 Player of the Week winners, and it's not that close:
