Cal's Best sets modern-era record with 5 TDs

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

MINNEAPOLIS -- Forget about the quarterbacks for a minute. Cal's Jahvid Best has put himself in the thick of the Heisman Trophy race.

Best set a Cal modern-era record with his fifth touchdown run, which put away with the game with 2:59. The previous record had been four, which Best recorded last year against Washington.

The junior has 23 carries for 133 yards in the game.

Minnesota's defense has had no answer for Best on the edges. Then again, no one does.
