BERKELEY - Cal senior linebacker Zack Follett, who recorded 11 tackles in the Bears' 26-16 victory over Oregon last Saturday, has been named the Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Week.

Follett's selection marks the third time in five weeks that a Cal player has earned the defensive honor. Sophomore defensive end Cameron Jordan won the award after the Oct. 4 Arizona State game and sophomore linebacker Mike Mohamed was recognized following the Oct. 25 UCLA contest.

Of Follett's 11 tackles, eight were solo, three were for loss and one was a quarterback sack. He and the Cal defense limited the high-powered Ducks to just 290 yards and 16 points after they entered the game averaging nearly 475 ypg and 41 ppg.
