Magee set a Territorial Cup record with 14 solo tackles in the Sun Devils' win over the Arizona Wildcats.
Arizona St. Sun Devils linebacker Brandon Magee joins kick returner Rashad Ross (special teams) and defensive tackle Will Sutton (defense) as Sun Devils who have been named Pac-12 football players of the week after earning defensive honors this week.
Magee set a Territorial Cup record with 14 solo tackles in the Sun Devils' 41-34 win over the Arizona Wildcats on Nov. 23. Magee had a career-high 17 tackles in total, including three tackles for loss, and his 17 total tied the fifth-most in a game between the two teams.
The Sun Devils' defense has been a highlight of the season and players like Magee have made that possible. The defense ranks second in the Pac-12 and 27th in the nation in total defense.
Magee is a leader on the football field and his play speaks louder than words. He leads the team and is second in the Pac-12 in tackles with 104, making him the first Sun Devil with 100 or more tackles since Robert James in 2007.
