PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State University senior quarterback Alex Brink has been named the Pacific-10 Conference Offensive Player of the Week, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced Monday.
In his final game as a Cougar, Brink led WSU to a come-from-behind, 42-35 victory in the Apple Cup over rival Washington in the 100th meeting between the two teams. The Eugene, Ore., native completed 27-of-40 passes for 399 yards and five touchdowns with no interceptions.
Brink's touchdown passes covered 41, 19, 28, 40 and 35 yards, with the final one the game-winner with 31 seconds left on the clock. It marked the second time this season Brink has thrown for five touchdowns, and it was his fourth consecutive game with over 300 yards.
Brink finished his career in third place on the Pac-10 career passing list with 10,913 yards, and fifth in touchdown passes with 76.
The honor is Brink's second career Player of the Week award. He also won conference player of the week honors for the UCLA game in 2006, after throwing for 405 yards against UCLA in 2006.
The award was the second for the Cougars this season, as senior safety Husain Abdullah was named Defensive Player of the Week two weeks ago.
