Taylor was pivotal to the Bruins dominating the Texas Longhorns on the ground on Saturday, as UCLA ran for 264 yards in its 34-12 win over Texas, including 191 rushing yards in the second half. Per the UCLA What's Bruin blog, this honor is quite rare:

Taylor is the first lineman to earn the Pac-10 weekly offensive honor since Oregon tackle Adam Snyder claimed the award on Sept. 20, 2003.

Westgate is the second straight UCLA linebacker to take home defensive player of the week honors, joining Patrick Larimore, who won for his performance last week against the Houston Cougars at the Rose Bowl. Against the Longhorns, Westgate had 11 tackles, including seven solo tackles and a forced fumble on a punt.
