The Pac-12 conference has divulged their weekly honors and UCLA once again was featured.

Two UCLA Bruins earned awards in the trifecta of offensive, defensive and special teams Pac-12 Players of the Week in football.

Not surprisingly, Jerry Neuheisel was named Offensive Pac-12 Player of the Week, after he came in for the injured Brett Hundley and calmly led his team to two TDs and set up a FG.  The apple didn't fall very far from the tree.

And giving credit where credit is due, Ishmael Adams was named Special Teams Pac-12 Player of the Week, getting some recognition for setting up the winning TD with his 45-yard punt return at the end of the game.

Big congratulations to both Bruins, I know I don't get tired of watching those two final highlights.

While Eddie Vanderdoes was also nominated for defensive player of the week, that award unfortunately went to UW's Shaq Thompson.

Hoping to keep the streak going with more Bruins (and no ASU players) on this list in two weeks.
