WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- Wide receiver Marqise Lee of USC, linebacker Marquis Flowers of Arizona and wide receiverkick returner Reggie Dunn of Utah have been named Pac-12 Players of the Week in football. Lee, a sophomore from Inglewood, Calif., set a Pac-12 record with 345 receiving yards while hauling in 16 catches--one shy of the USC single-game record, and the third-highest total in Pac-12 annals-- and a pair touchdowns in a 39-36 loss to Arizona. His 345-yard receiving effort represents the fifth-highest single-game mark in NCAA history. He accounted for 469 all-purpose yards, a total that ranks second in NCAA history, as he added 123 yards on three kickoff returns and a one-yard rush. Lee, who racked up 255 receiving yards in the first half, caught six passes of 28 yards or longer on the afternoon. In 2012, he has 76 receptions for 1,129 yards (14.9 average) with 10 touchdowns and has returned 15 kickoffs for 426 yards (28.4 average). He leads the Pac-12 in receiving yards per game (141.1, second in the FBS), receptions per game (9.5, third in the FBS), all-purpose running (199.9 avg., fourth in the FBS) and kickoff returns (28.4 avg., 12th in the FBS). Flowers, a junior from Phoenix, Ariz., accounted for three takeaways and seven total tackles in Arizonas 39-35 win over USC. On the games opening possession, he halted a 13-play USC drive with an interception at the UA 26-yard line to set up a 7-play, 60-yard touchdown drive for the Wildcats. In the second quarter, Flowers quelled another USC attack deep in Arizona territory with a strip of running back Silas Redd, and later in the frame, he preserved a three-point Wildcat lead with with his second interception of the afternoon. His three takeaways were part of a five turnover day for the Arizona defense, its highest single-game total since 2008. Flowers and the UA defense, which allowed just one third-down conversion in five second-half attempts, held USC scoreless on six of the final seven possessions of the game. Dunn, a senior from Compton, Calif., returned two kickoffs for touchdowns, tying the NCAA record for kick return touchdowns in a game, in a 49-27 victory over California. Dunn set the NCAA record for kick return average in a game (74.0), returning three kicks for 222 yards. He tied the school record for 100-yard kickoff returns in a season (2) and set school records for kickoff return touchdowns in a game and 100-yard kick returns in a career (3). As a sophomore in 2010, he became the first Ute in 25 years to return a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown, accomplishing the feat against Iowa State.
