WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Two Washington football players - cornerback Desmond Trufant and kicker Erik Folk - have named Pac-12 Players of the Week following the UW's win over Eastern Washington, the conference office announced today.

Trufant, the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week, led both teams with 11 total tackles, but most importantly intercepted a pass in the end zone with just 29 seconds remaining in the game to preserve the win. The junior from Tacoma also forced a fumble on a punt return early in the game.

Folk, a senior from Woodland Hills, Calif., connected on all three field-goal attempts in the game, making from 53, 47 and 40 yards out to earn Pac-12 Special Teams Player of the Week. The 53-yarder was the fourth-longest ever by a Husky.

USC receiver Robert Woods, who caught 17 passes for 177 yards in the Trojans' win over Minnesota, earned offensive honors.

Washington takes on Hawai'i this Saturday at 12:30 p.m. PT at Husky Stadium. The game will air live on ROOT Sports TV and the Washington IMG College Network, with flagship station 950 KJR-AM.
