Pac-12 helmet stickers: Week 10
By Ted Miller
Who gets a helmet sticker for a job well done (on a bad day for the Pac-12)?
California's defense: The Bears held Washington State to 224 yards in a 30-7 win. The Cougars rushed for just 69 yards and were 4-of-16 on third down. The Bears had three sacks.
John Hays, Utah: While John White -- 109 yards and 2 TDs -- was the star for Utah in the 34-21 win over Arizona, Hays passed for 199 yards and two TDs with no interceptions. Most important: No interceptions.
Eddie Pleasant, Oregon: The Ducks safety grabbed two interceptions in the 34-17 win over Washington. His 65 yards of INT return also helped set up two short Ducks TD drives.
Matt Barkley, USC: The USC QB set a school record with six touchdown passes in the Trojans 42-17 win over Colorado.
Derrick Coleman, UCLA: The Bruins running back rushed for 119 yards on 17 carries -- 7.0 yards per carry -- and scored two TDs, including the 1-yard game-winner over Arizona State with less than a minute left in a game they won 29-28.
Griff Whalen, Stanford: The underrated Whalen has become Andrew Luck's favorite target, and he'll need to be with Chris Owusu hurt. Whalen caught six passes for 87 yards with a TD in the 38-13 win over Oregon State.
