1. California RB Shane Vereen
Vereen is a backup to Jahvid Best but proved once again in Week 12 why he could start for most programs in the country. The undersized Vereen handled the lion's share of the touches while exploiting an athletically overmatched Stanford defense, carrying 41 times for 194 yards and three touchdowns in a 34-28 upset win.
