Johnathan Franklin, Marqise Lee Earn Pac-12 Honors For Offense, Special Teams

Two players from L.A. schools earned Pac-12 honors this week. Johnathan Franklin of the UCLA Bruins earned Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week honors for his outstanding rushing performance. Marqise Lee of the USC Trojans earned Pac-12 Special Teams Player of the Week honors for one highlight kickoff return.

Franklin had an outstanding weekend. He had three rushing touchdowns, including two of 70 yards or more. Franklin finished with 214 yards on the game and averaged over 14.3 yards per carry in UCLA's 49-24 triumph over Rice.

Lee wasn't any less spectacular on offense, as he caught ten passes for 191 yards and clearly emerged as Matt Barkley's number one receiving weapon over Robert Woods. But Lee displayed equal prowess in the return game, taking a Hawaii kickoff return 100 yards to the house. USC beat Hawaii 49-10.
