Oregon State senior Manase Hungalu was named the Pac-12 defensive player of the week on Monday.

Hungalu, a 6-foot-1, 238-pound inside linebacker from Kealakehe, recorded a career-high 20 tackles in a 37-23 loss to California on Saturday.

The 20 tackles are the fourth-most in an NCAA FBS game this year and the fourth-most by a Beavers player in school history.

His 13 solo tackles are also the third-most in the NCAA FBS this season.

Hungalu is averaging nine tackles per game this season and is one of three players in the Pac-12 ranking in the top 20 in tackles, passes defended and interceptions per game.

This is the first Pac-12 player of the week honor for Hungalu and the first for an Oregon State player in a conference game since 2013.
