MWC HONORS: BYU football players Brandon Doman and Ryan Denney were named Mountain West Conference players of the week following the Cougars' 44-16 win over Pac-10 foe California on Saturday.

Doman was named offensive player of the week after throwing for three touchdowns and rushing for three more scores at Cal. He passed for 272 yards, completing 16 of 24 attempts, as he improved to 5-0 as BYU's starter.

Doman is the first BYU quarterback since Robbie Bosco in 1984 to win his first five starts

and first since Steve Sarkisian in 1996 to be responsible for six TDs in a game.

The Cougars lead the country in scoring offense with 55.3 points a game and are second in total offense at 606.7 yards per contest.

Denney, a senior defensive end, recorded two of BYU's five sacks, while also making seven tackles, including six solo stops. He also had a forced fumble that led to a BYU touchdown and deflected one pass.

The 24th-ranked Cougars will travel to No. 17 Mississippi State on Saturday. Game time is slated for 5:30 p.m.
