SEATTLE - After each game, Coach Tyrone Willingham and the Husky football coaching staff will name the Huskies' Pepsi Players of the Game for that week's performance. The winners following the UW's 27-17 loss to Oregon State are tailback Kenny James, linebacker Scott White, punter Sean Douglas, offensive lineman Eric Berglund and defensive lineman Cameron Elisara.
James, a senior from Dos Palos, Calif., rushed for 83 yards on 17 carries in the Oregon State game. He also caught one pass. James currently leads the UW in rushing.
White, a senior from Lemon Grove, Calif., notched seven tackles, including two for a loss, forced a fumble and intercepted two passes, which both led directly to the Huskies' two touchdowns. White is seventh in the Pac-10 in tackles and second in interceptions, with four.
Douglas, a senior from Bellevue, Neb., is the Pac-10's top punter and ranks fifth in the NCAA. In the OSU game, he punted eight times for an average of 41.6 yards per punt, dropping three of his kicks inside the Beavers' 20-yard line.
Berglund, a junior from Beaverton, Ore., and Elisara, a freshman from Spokane, Wash., were honored for their work on the Huskies' service teams.
