We're looking at the top individual performances in the Pac-12 in 2011.

Up next: Wilkerson wrecks.

Who & against whom: Coming off an injury that sidelined him for most of the 2010 season, Cal linebacker David Wilkerson had a monster game in the Bears' 34-10 win over Utah.

The numbers: Wilkerson logged six tackles in the game that was dominated by Cal's defense. Of those six, 3. 5 were tackles for a loss and 2.5 were sacks. He also had a QB hit for good measure.

A closer look: The Utes came into the Bay Area hoping to win their first conference game, but were denied by a motivated Cal defense that was also looking for its first conference win and had dropped its previous three games. Wilkerson picked up his first solo sack of the game on Utah's second offensive possession when he got to Utah quarterback Jon Hays on third down for minus-9 yards. He continued to get penetration before picking up a pair of assisted sacks in a three-play span inside the Cal red zone in the fourth quarter. Wilkerson, however, wasn't exactly a one-man wrecking crew. There were plenty of Cal defensive highlights in the game — including interceptions from Stefan McClure, Mychal Kendricks and a 32-yard pick-six from Josh Hill.
