Football: Mohamed, not Vereen, takes honor

Cal linebacker Mike Mohamed has been named Pac-10 Player of the Week for defense. Mohamed becomes the first conference player this season to win the defensive award twice.

Cal running back Shane Vereen, despite his 193 yards and three touchdowns, was not named the winner for offense. That honor went to Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, who threw for 284 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for three other scores in the Ducks’ 44-41 double-overtime win over Arizona.
