Helmet stickers for those who stood out during the weekend's games.

Oregon's rushing offense: Oregon piled up 304 yards rushing -- averaging 7.1 yards per run -- against Arizona State without any player eclipsing the 100-yard benchmark. The Ducks scored five rushing touchdowns and have 30 on the season, a total that is tops in the nation. They average 279 yards a game, which ranks fifth.helmet sticker

Stafon Johnson: He's USC's most consistently effective back but he never seems to complain about having to share the football. He rushed for 83 yards on 19 tough carries in the Trojans 17-10 win over Arizona and also had a 54-yard punt return. But his best play was a spectacular cut block of a blitzing Wildcats safety right in front of quarterback Mark Sanchez that allowed Sanchez to throw a touchdown pass to a wide open Stanley Havili. That touchdown proved to be the winning margin.

Jahvid Best: While he was sporting a bulbous protective brace on his injured elbow, Jahvid Best regained his status as the Pac-10's most explosive running back. He rushed for 115 yards on 17 carries in the win over UCLA, and his spectacular 34-yard touchdown scamper gave the Bears the lead for good.

Rey Maualuga: Maualuga hasn't always been his dominant self this season, in large part due to nagging injuries. But he was a force in the middle of USC's dominant defensive effort in the win over Arizona. He recorded a team-high nine tackles -- eight solo -- and frequently delivered his trademark reverberating blows.
