STANFORD, Calif. — Stanford's Andrew Luck has won the Pac-12's offensive player of the year award and David Shaw has been honored as the league's best coach in his first season.
Luck became the fifth player to take home the award twice Monday. He threw for 3,170 yards and 35 touchdowns, breaking the Stanford single-season record he set a year ago.
Shaw took over for Jim Harbaugh and put the fourth-ranked Cardinal (11-1, 8-1) in position for a second straight BCS bowl. Stanford had never had consecutive 10-win seasons.
California linebacker Mychal Kendricks won defensive player of the year. Southern California wide receiver Marqise Lee and Oregon running back De'Anthony Thomas shared freshman offensive honors.
USC linebacker Dion Bailey was awarded freshman defensive player of the year.
