Pac-12 Helmet Stickers: Week 3
By Ted Miller
Who gets a helmet sticker for a job well done (on a bad day for the Pac-12)?
Matt Barkley, USC: The Trojans QB completed 26 of 39 passes for 324 yards for five touchdowns with no interceptions in USC's 38-17 win over Syracuse.
Marquess Wilson, Washington State: The Cougars receiver caught six passes for 236 yards and two TDs in a 42-24 loss at San Diego State.
LaMichael James, Oregon: The Ducks running back rushed for 204 yards on 12 carries with three TDs with a long of 90 yards, which obscured a 50-yard TD run. Hey, it was during a 56-7 win over Missouri State, but still... a 50 and 90 yard run?
James Johnson, Washington: The Huskies receiver, who suffered a sophomore slump in 2010, caught six passes for 108 yards with two touchdowns in the 51-38 loss at Nebraska.
The Cal defense: We give the Bears defense a helmet sticker so folks will know it didn't yield a point in the 63-12 win over Presbyterian. Those points came on a pick-6 and a blocked punt. The Bears defense yielded three first downs and 48 total yards.
John White, Utah: The Utes' running back rushed for 174 yards on 22 carries with three TDs in a 54-10 win over rival BYU. That's an average of 7.9 yards per rush.
Rodney Stewart, Colorado: The Colorado running back rushed 19 times for 98 yards and caught seven passes for 93 yards in the Buffaloes' 28-14 win over Colorado State.
Levine Toilolo, Stanford: The Cardinal tight end caught four passes for 102 yards with a touchdown in the win 37-10 win over Arizona.
