Pac-12 helmet stickers
By Ted Miller
Who gets a helmet sticker for a job well done?
This is mostly about quarterbacks. Apologies for ignoring defense.
Marshall Lobbestael, Washington State: The Cougars quarterback, stepping in for injured starter Jeff Tuel, completed 24 of 32 for 361 yards with five touchdowns in the 59-7 blowout win over UNLV.
Tyler Hansen, Colorado: The Buffaloes quarterback completed 28 of 49 passes for a school record 474 yards with three TDs and no interceptions in the loss to California.
Paul Richardson, Colorado: The Buffaloes receiver caught 11 passes for a school record 284 yards -- an average of 25.8 yards per reception -- with touchdowns of 66 and 78 yards.
Brock Osweiler, Arizona State: The Sun Devils quarterback completed 24 of 32 passes for 353 yards with three TDs and no interceptions in the Sun Devils win over Missouri. He also rushed five times for 34 yards and a score.
Keith Price, Washington: The Huskies quarterback connected on his first eight passes en route to a career-high 315 yards and four touchdowns and one interception in the win over Hawaii.
Darron Thomas, Oregon: The Ducks quarterback completed just 13 of 19 but those 13 went for 295 yards and six touchdowns.
DeVonte Christopher, Utah: The Utes receiver caught 11 passes for 136 yards with a touchdown in the loss to USC.
