Pac-10 helmet stickers: Not a good week

Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

It was a terrible weekend for the Pac-10. The conference went 3-7 overall, California and Arizona State were upset and likely will fall out of the national polls and UCLA and Washington gave up 114 points combined in blowout defeats.

So, not much in the way of helmet stickers.

USC QB Mark Sanchez: It's not just that he tossed four touchdown passes in the 35-3 win over No. 5 Ohio State. It's the way he has embraced a leadership role on the team. It's clear that he commands respect from both offensive and defensive players.

The USC defense: Ohio State had 177 yards and 13 first downs at halftime. The Buckeyes gained just 30 yards and earned two first downs in the second half. The Trojans also forced three turnovers, with linebacker Rey Maualuga returning one 48 yards for a score.

Oregon's run game: LeGarrette Blount rushed for 132 yards and two touchdowns, and Jeremiah Johnson added 17 carries for 96 yards as Oregon rushed for 306 yards in its 32-26 overtime win at Purdue. The Ducks entered the game averaging 332 yards rushing per game, so they apparently were a little off.

Oregon State QB Lyle Moevao: Moevao completed of 20 of 34 passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns and no interceptions as the Beavers bounced back from a drubbing at Penn State with a 45-7 win over Hawaii in front of their relieved home fans.
