LOS ANGELES—UCLA Bruins senior running back Jonathan Franklin was named Pac-12 Conference Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Rice Owls in Houston last week.

Franklin ran for 214 yards and scored three touchdowns against Rice en route to a 49-24 Bruin victory. Franklin is 849 yards away from becoming UCLA's all-time rushing leader.

Southern California's Marqise Lee was named Pac-12 Special Teams Player of the Week. Lee had a spectacular day on the offensive side of the ball, catching 10 balls for 197 yards and a touchdown, but his 100-yard kickoff return for a score was enough to win him the honor on special teams.

Linebacker Jake Fischer of Arizona was named Defensive Player of the Week after a 13-tackle effort in the Wildcats' win over Toledo.
