San Clemente Times

In a conference that has had its impressive share of quarterback performances in recent weeks, Utah quarterback Travis Wilson was deemed the most prolific as the former San Clemente standout was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week on September 23.

Wilson made his case for the award by leading the Utes to a 20-13 win over in-state rival Brigham Young University. He completed 69 percent of his passes for 273 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.

With his team holding a narrow 13-6 lead in the fourth quarter, Wilson ignited a 12-play, 79-yard scoring drive that sealed the win for Utah.

It was the first time since the university joined the conference in 2011 that a Ute was named Offensive Player of the Week.

Wilson is in the early stages of an impressive sophomore campaign. He has rushed for 251 yards on 32 carries and has scored five touchdowns in four games. He’s also thrown for 1,118 yards and nine touchdowns.

The Utes are now on a bye week and will host UCLA on October 3 in their next game.
