Who stood out in week 11?
Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford: Gerhart was an unstoppable force vs. USC. He rushed for 178 yards on 29 carries with three touchdowns, giving him 19 for the year. He sure looked like a Heisman Trophy candidate.
California's defense: While running back Shane Vereen -- 159 yards rushing -- deserves a tip of the cap, resurgent defense is the reason Cal upset Arizona 24-16. The Bears held the No. 1 offense in the Pac-10 to 274 total yards and they sacked Wildcats quarterback Nick Foles three times. Arizona had surrendered four sacks in the previous eight games.
Jacquizz Rodgers, RB, Oregon State: Rodgers just keeps trucking along, this time gaining 159 yards on just 18 carries with two touchdowns in the Beavers 48-21 whipping of Washington. He sure looked like a Heisman Trophy candidate.
LaMichael James, RB, Oregon: James rushed for 150 yards on 22 carries and scored three touchdowns against the nation's No. 6 run defense as Oregon rolled over Arizona State 44-21.
Kevin Prince, QB, UCLA: A week after being concussed by Washington, Prince kept up his strong play by passing for 314 yards and a touchdown in the Bruins 43-7 win at Washington State. Oh, he also ran 68 yards for a touchdown.
