WESTWOOD—The UCLA Bruins are turning the college football world upside down and running Jonathan Franklin is a big reason why.

Franklin leads the nation with 431 rushing yards, including 217 in the Bruins' win over #17 Nebraska Saturday night.

For that effort, Franklin has been rewarded with his second consecutive Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week Award. Franklin becomes the first UCLA player to win the award on the offensive side in nearly 30 years. Bruins kicker Chris Sailer won back-to-back Special Teams Player of the Week awards in 1997.

Oregon State linebacker D.J. Welch won the award on defense for his 7-tackle effort against Wisconsin and Arizona kicker John Bonano won Special Teams Player of the Week for his 3-field goal, 6-extra point effort against Oklahoma State.
