Oregon's TJ Bass repeats as Pac-12 Offensive Lineman of the Week
Oregon tackle TJ Bass has once again been named the top offensive lineman of the week in the Pac-12.
Bass was voted as the Pac-12’s Offensive Lineman of the week for his help in the Ducks’ 49-22 win over Arizona, the conference announced on Monday. It’s the second time in as many weeks for the senior out of Deming, Washington, and the fourth time in his career Bass has earned the honor, matching former Duck Penei Sewell for the most in the award’s history. (It was created in 2019.) Bass also joins Sewell as the only players to receive the award in consecutive weeks.

Playing 52 snaps at left tackle, Bass helped the Ducks rush for 306 yards and seven touchdowns in Oregon’s win at Arizona, the most rushing scores in a single game for the Ducks since 2017 and the most against an FBS opponent since 2012.
Oregon also did not allow a sack for the fifth time in six games this season, with Bass not allowing a single quarterback pressure (a hurry, hit, or sack), according to Pro Football Focus. PFF gave Bass an 82.4 overall grade and an 84.3 run-blocking grade, both tops among Oregon offensive linemen.
Bass and the Oregon offensive line also did not allow a tackle for loss against the Wildcats, the first time Oregon has done that since 2010.
No. 12 Oregon (5-1, 3-0 Pac-12) will return to action following its bye week on Oct. 22 when it hosts No. 11 UCLA (6-0, 3-0 Pac-12) at Autzen Stadium. Kickoff in that one is set for 12:30 p.m. PT on either FOX or FS1.
