Pac-12Each week our senior football writers—Dane Miller, Nick Bartlett, Stephen Vilardo, Mark Shmor, and Steve Ritchie—select an Offensive, Defensive, and Freshman Player of the Week throughout the 2021 football season.

They submit their selections before the official Pac-12 Players of the Week are released to keep their choices independent. Eight different players received votes in Week 12.

You’ll find a tabulation of their choices and a cumulative listing of all weekly SportsPac12 Players of the Week at the bottom of the page.
