BOULDER, Colo. — The 2020 CU Buffs continue to turn heads.

Two players from the University of Colorado were named Pac-12 football Players of the Week on Monday afternoon. Quarterback Sam Noyer was named the Conference's Offensive Player of the week, while linebacker Nate Landman was given the Defensive Player of the Week.

It is the eighth time in school history that CU has received both the offensive and defensive honors in the same week.

The Buffs improved to 2-0 over the weekend following a 35-32 road win at Stanford. 

Noyer completed 15-of-24 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns, in addition to rushing eight times for 36 yards and another two scores; his passer rating for the game was 170.9. Landman recorded 17 tackles (14 solo) to lead the Buffs on defense.

Colorado's upcoming game against Arizona State has been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns and will not be rescheduled.
