WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- Running back KaDeem Carey of Arizona, linebacker Anthony Barr of UCLA and placekicker Trevor Romaine of OREGON STATE have been named Pac-12 Players of the Week in football. Carey, a sophomore from Tucson, Ariz., rushed for a Pac-12-record 366 yards--the ninth-highest single-game total in FBS history-- on 25 carries (14.6 average) and scored five touchdowns as the Wildcats defeated Colorado, 56-31. He broke the previous Conference record of 357 yards, which had stood for 28 years. Additionally, his 400 all-purpose yards broke a 58-year-old school record, and his five rushing touchdowns, which came on runs of 10, 13, 30, 8 and 3 yards, tied the Pac-12 single-game mark. Carey managed five runs of 20-plus yards and four of 30-plus yards, including bursts of 71, 64 and 46 yards, en route to breaking Arizonas single-game record for yards per carry average (14.6, minimum 20 attempts). He turned in his seventh 100-yard rushing performance of the season and pushed his season rushing total to 1,381 yards, a figure that tops the Conference and ranks second in the FBS. He is tied for fifth in the FBS with 18 rushing touchdowns and is tied for fourth with 19 all-purpose touchdowns on the year. He also ranks second in the nation with 1,662 total yards from scrimmage. Barr, a junior from San Pedro, Calif., collected eight tackles, including 2.5 sacks and 3.0 tackles for loss, in a 44-36 win over Washington State. His 2.5 sacks and 3.0 tackles for loss represent career highs for the running back-turned-linebacker, who also blocked a punt and forced a safety in the game. On WSUs first offensive series of the game, he registered a sack on third down that forced a field goal attempt that was blocked and returned for a touchdown. His tackle for a safety in the second quarter gave the Bruins a 23-7 lead and set up a touchdown drive after the free kick that provided a 30-7 cushion. He has 11 sacks (1.10 avg.) and 17.0 tackles for loss (1.70), figures rank second in the Pac-12 and are tied for sixth in the nation. Romaine, a sophomore from Corona, Calif., connected on three-of-three field goals and was perfect on extra points (2-2) in a 27-23 loss at Stanford. He accounted for 11 of Oregon States 23 points and sent four kickoffs into the endzone for touchbacks. His field goals came on tries of 19, 42 and 44 yards. Romaine, who is 13-of-15 on field goals this season, has converted three-of-three field goal attempts in each of the last two games and has a streak of nine consecutive successful tries. Also nominated for offensive player of the week honors were quarterbacks Marcus Mariota of Oregon, and Brett Hundley of UCLA running backs Christian Powell of Colorado, Stepfan Taylor of Stanford, Curtis McNeal of USC and Bishop Sankey of Washington. Also nominated on defense were linebackers Carl Bradford of Arizona State, Lamar Dawson of USC and John Timu of Washington and defensive tackle Terrence Stephens of Stanford. Also nominated on special teams was defensive back Stan McKay of UCLA.
