Pac-12 helmet stickers: Week 6
By Ted Miller
So who deserves a helmet sticker for a job well done?
Anthony Jefferson, CB, UCLA: Jefferson grabbed two of the Bruins' six interceptions in their 34-27 win over Utah. He also tied for second on the Bruins with seven total tackles.
Connor Halliday, QB, Washington State: Despite playing in pain the entire game, Halliday fell just 10 yards short of the school record with 521 yards passing at California in the Cougs' 42-22 victory. He completed a school-record 41 passes on 67 attempts with three TDs and an interception.
Deone Bucannon, S, Washington State: Bucannon led the Cougars with 12 tackles with two coming for a loss. He also returned an interception 47 yards.
Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon: While Mariota wasn't terribly sharp early against Colorado, he still put up huge numbers. He completed 16 of 27 passes for 355 yards with five touchdown passes and no interceptions. He also rushed seven times for 43 yards with two touchdowns in the 57-16 victory. So, yeah, accounting for seven TDs is pretty good.
Bralon Addison, WR, Oregon: Addison only caught five passes, but two went for TDs of 44 and 75 yards. He finished with 158 yards receiving.
Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State: Strong caught eight passes for 136 yards -- 17.0 yards per catch -- with a 36-yard touchdown in the Sun Devils 37-34 loss to Notre Dame.
Keith Price, QB, Washington: Price's numbers were very good -- 33-of-48 for 350 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in the Huskies 31-28 loss at Stanford. But it wasn't just numbers. If you watched the game, you saw a guy extending plays with his feet, taking hard hits and making tough plays. Just a gutty effort against one of the nation's best defenses.
Ty Montgomery, KR/WR, Stanford: Montgomery accounted for nearly 300 total yards for Stanford in the win over the Huskies. The biggest play was his first touch -- a 99-yard return of the opening kickoff for a touchdown. He finished with 204 yards in kick returns, 30 yards on two rushes and 56 yards receiving on three catches with 39-yard TD.
