Not surprised by this news...Barkley had a great game!
Quarterback Matt Barkley was named the Pac-12 conference's offensive player of the week Monday after he posted a five-touchdown, no-interception performance in a 38-17 win over Syracuse on Saturday.
Barkley, a junior, completed 26-of-39 passes for 324 yards against the Orange, throwing touchdown passes to five different receivers. The five touchdowns tied a school record; it was the third time in his career Barkley had reached the mark, with the first two coming last season against Hawaii and California.
Big Congrats to Barkley!!
