PFF college has once again announced their team of the week for the Pac-12 and senior wide receiver Brandon Arconado made the cut. The 6-foot 193 pound redshirt senior went over the century mark in receiving yards for the second week in a row. Arconado caught 9 passes for 115 yards as he was quarterback Anthony Gordon’s go-to guy in the comeback 31-24 win over Houston. Arconado joined Colorado pass catcher Laviska Shenault and Oregon State’s Champ Flemings on the conference team of the week.

The website also highlighted quarterback Anthony Gordon’s outstanding effort against Houston.

PFF also highlighted that Gordon was fourth nationally in adjusted completion percentage at 85.0. Utah’s Tyler Huntley who the Cougars face next week is No.1 nationally. Adjusted completion percentage takes into account drops, throwaways, spikes, batted balls and QB hits to figure out the most accurate representation of a quarterback’s ability to complete a pass. The clean passer rating is also an area where Gordon ranks among the country’s best. This just takes into account passing attempts that are made when a quarterback isn’t under pressure. “Gordo” continues to make waves nationally as he continues the great lineage of Mike Leach coached quarterbacks.

PFF also gave a shout-out to Cougar alumni Gardner Minshew who now has the second highest adjusted completion percentage in the NFL through the first two weeks.

Great stuff!
