Jaydn Ott had a good Monday thanks to a wonderful weekend.

The freshman running back for Cal just piled up the honors following a 274-yard, three-touchdown performance in Cal’s 49-31 victory over Arizona. In addition to being named the Pac-12 Offensive Player and Freshman of the Week, Ott was named the 247Sports True Freshman of the Week, FWAA Freshman Focus Selection, and Rose Bowl Game Pac-12 Player of the Week.

In four weeks, Ott has been the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week three times now.

His 274 yards rushing against Arizona are the most in an FBS game since LSU’s Tyrion Davis-Price had 287 against Florida on Oct. 16, 2021, the most by an FBS freshman since Maryland redshirt freshman Anthony McFarland had 298 against Ohio State on Nov. 17, 2018, and the most by an FBS true freshman since Texas’ Chris Warren III had 276 against Texas Tech on Nov. 26, 2015.

They were also the third-most in a single game in Cal football history, and the most ever by a Cal freshman.

He flashed everything in the performance — elusiveness, vision, balance, strength to fight through contact. He had touchdown runs of 73 and 72 yards, becoming the first Cal player with multiple 70-yard runs in a single game since Jahvid Best did it in 2008. Pretty decent company to keep.

Through four weeks, Ott leads the Pac-12 with 463 rushing yards and is tied for first with four scores. His 8.3 yards per carry ranks third nationally. He is the highest-graded running back in college football right now, according to Pro Football Focus, after earning a 99.9 run grade for his performance against the UA — a first for an FBS running back since 2016.

Offensive lineman Ben Coleman was also honored by the Pac-12 as the league’s Offensive Lineman of the Week.

The Golden Bears return to the field this upcoming Saturday, when they face Washington State at 2:30 p.m. PT on the Pac-12 Network.
