Buffs WR Paul Richardson Wins Pac-12 Offensive Player Of The Week

Has Colorado Buffaloes wide receiver Paul Richardson emerged as one of the Pac-12's top wide receivers? Saturday's performance of 11 receptions for 284 yards and two touchdown receptions certainly should put him on the map as a receiver coaches will need to think about covering.

For that performance, Richardson has been named the Pac-12 offensive player of the week. Among the players Richardson beat out for the weekly award were California QB Zach Maynard (4 TD), Stanford QB Andrew Luck (4 TD), Washington State's Marshall Lobbestael (5 TD, 361 passing yards) and Oregon's Darron Thomas (6 TD).

As Jon Woods mentions over at the Ralphie Report:

It only took two weeks of play as a new member of the conference for a Colorado player to win the honor, a feat that shouldn't be overlooked.

While his competitors put up big numbers against their respective opponents, none of those games was as close as California against Colorado. The Buffs took the game to overtime, but lost, 36-33.
