TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - After topping then 15th ranked Washington State on Saturday, Khalil Tate has garnered a couple more awards to back up his record breaking performances.
Tate was announced as Pac-12 Offensive Player of the week for the 4th week in a row. That's the first time it's happened in league history. Tate tied Rodney Peete last week when he won it 3 weeks in a row, which hadn't happened since '88 when Peete did it.
Tate was also announced as a semifinalist for the Maxwell Award. This award is given to the top player in college football. The semifinal pool consists of 18 players, and includes other Pac-12 notables of Stanford's Bryce Love and USC's Sam Darnold.
Tate's performance has helped the Wildcats reach a 6-2 record this season, after starting a lowly 2-2. A 6th win means they are now officially bowl eligible.
#23 Arizona will face #17 USC on Saturday at 7:45 on ESPN.
