After Justin Herbert’s historic performance against Arizona State, the Oregon freshman quarterback has been named the Manning Award Quarterback of the Week.

Against the Sun Devils, Herbert tied a school record with 489 yards, completing 31-of-42 passes with four touchdowns. Herbert finished with 512 yards of total offense, becoming the first player in school history with over 500 yards of total offense.

Herbert’s career at Oregon is off to a promising start, completing 74-of-116 passes for 926 yards with 12 touchdowns, all the most by an Oregon freshman quarterback in a three-game stretch. Herbert is the first true freshman to start for Oregon since 1989.

Voting for this week’s award was held on the Allstate Sugar Bowl’s Facebook page. The player with the most likes on his photo took home the award. Herbert edged out Wyoming’s Josh Allen, who received over 5,000 likes after passing for a career-high 274 yards and four touchdowns while leading his Cowboys to a 30-28 upset over No. 13 Boise State.
