Tipping our cap to three stars from Week 5 in the Pac-12.
Mike Bercovici, QB, Arizona State: There were quarterbacks who had better numbers. And while Arizona State's 38-23 victory over previously unbeaten UCLA felt very much like a team effort, someone gets the snaps for the magnitude of the victory. So, hey, why not the QB? Bercovici connected on 27 of 44 passes for 273 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. He also carried nine times for 37 yards and a touchdown.
Stefan McClure, S, California: A Cal player? On defense? For the second week in a row? Welcome to the 2015 season, where the Bears are the thieves of the Pac-12 with 18 turnovers forced. McClure took one of those turnovers, a fumble by Washington State, and returned it 45 yards for a touchdown to go along with his six tackles and one very physical sack in a 34-28 win.
Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford: After weeks of watching other Stanford backs pilfer his short-yardage touchdowns, the do-all McCaffrey scored on a 4-yard run late in the first quarter to give the Cardinal a 13-0 lead in their eventual 55-17 drubbing of Arizona. He finished with 260 all-purpose yards, including 156 on the ground and 98 yards in kick returns.
