Byrd - Pac10 Defensive Player of the Week
Jairus Byrd was named Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts against UCLA this weekend. Byrd had nine tackles (six solo), 1 intercepted pass (not including the one that was taken away from the questionable pass interference call) and three pass breakups. Byrd was the second Duck to come away with a Pac-10 Player of the Week award after Matt Evensen for his performance vs. Purdue.
