Stanford inside linebacker Shayne Skov has been named the Bronko Nagurski National Defensive Player of the Week, as announced by the Football Writers Association of America. Stanford's fifth-year senior is sharing the weekly honor with Duke defensive back DeVon Edwards.
Skov's biggest play of the night came early in the second quarter when he ended an 80-yard Oregon drive with a forced fumble and recovery of De'Anthony Thomas on the two-yard line. The play kept Stanford on top 14-0, as the defense shutout the Ducks through the first three quarters.
Skov added two quarterback hurries and a pass breakup to complete the all-around performance.
