Pac-10 helmet stickers: Week 6
By Ted Miller
Who deserves a sticker on his helmet for a job well done?
Shane Vereen: The California running back rushed for 151 yards on 25 carries with two touchdowns and he caught three passes for 51 yards.
Cal's defense: The Bears defense, which was embarrassed by Nevada's pistol offense, held UCLA to just 144 total yards in a 35-7 win. The Bruins had ranked 10th in the nation in rushing with 262.4 yards per game, but they managed only 26 yards against Cal.
Ryan Katz: Oregon State's sophomore quarterback completed 30-of-42 for 393 yards and two touchdowns in the Beavers 29-27 upset of No. 9 Arizona. He did throw his first interception of the year, but that has been offset by his nine touchdowns.
Matt Barkley: The USC quarterback passed for 390 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions in the Trojans 37-35 loss to Stanford. He also led a clutch drive for what looked like the game-winning touchdown. Until...
Andrew Luck: The Stanford quarterback completed 20-of-24 for 285 yards with three touchdowns in the win over USC. He answered Barkley's clutch drive with a seven-play, 62-yard drive for the game-winning field goal as time expired.
Robert Woods: USC's true freshman receiver caught 12 passes for 224 yards and three touchdowns.
Steven Threet: The Arizona State quarterback bounced back from seven interceptions in the past two games to lead the Sun Devils to a 24-14 win at Washington. He completed 21-of-34 for 288 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.
