SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 Sports) - For the second-straight week, Utah’s Reggie Dunn has been named the Pac-12 Special Teams Player of the Week.
Dunn returned his only kickoff attempt 100 yards for a touchdown in Utah’s 49-6 win over Washington State. It was the third 100-yard kickoff return in two weeks for Dunn, who now has four NCAA kickoff return records: 100-yard kickoff returns in a game (2) and career (4), kick return average in a game (74.0 on three returns vs. Cal), and kick return touchdowns from any distance in a game (2, tied).
Dunn is averaging 55.4 yards per KOR, which would lead the nation, but he does not have enough attempts to qualify for the NCAA rankings (he has seven returns while the current leader has nine returns for an average of 42.08 yards. The minimum is 1.2 per game).
In addition to his kick return for a touchdown against WSU, Dunn also caught two passes for 15 yards and rushed twice for 15 yards.
Utah visits Washington on Saturday. Washington is the only Pac-12 school that Utah has never beaten (0-7).
