USC punter Kris Albarado was selected the Pac-12 Conference special teams player of the week for his performance in the Trojans' 17-14 victory over Utah State.
Albarado, a third-year sophomore from Louisiana, placed five of seven punts inside the 20-yard line, including two inside the five.
Albarado's effort helped USC defeat Utah State on a day when the Trojans offense stalled for much of the second half.
Albarado, who succeeded Kyle Negrete as the Trojans' punter, is averaging 40.3 yards per punt.
