This is it, the final helmet stickers post of the year. Let’s take a moment to reflect on all those whose helmets were stuck in 2012, and the ones we are honoring today.
Kevin Hogan, QB, Stanford: He’s 4-0 as a starter. He’s 4-0 against teams ranked in the BCS top 20. And now he has the Pac-12 champion Stanford Cardinal headed to the Rose Bowl after passing for a touchdown and rushing for another in the 27-24 title-game win.
Ed Reynolds, S, Stanford: He picked up his sixth interception of the season, followed by a ridiculous 80-yard return. Probably should have been 81 yards for a touchdown, but replay said otherwise. Either way, heck of a play. It was the lone turnover in the game, and provided a huge momentum swing.
Johnathan Franklin, RB, UCLA: He was outstanding against Stanford’s burly rush defense, carrying 19 times for 194 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Markus Wheaton, WR, Oregon State: Became Oregon State’s all-time receiving leader after hauling in 12 catches for 123 yards and a touchdown in the blowout win against Nicholls State. He also rushed for a touchdown in the 77-3 win.
