     Taylor Mays finally got to show he's every bit as fast as Cal tailback Jahvid Best.
    And with plenty of help from the Southern California safety, the No. 7 Trojans left Best and the Golden Bears in the dust.  And they did it on national television.

    Mays and the USC defense held the defending Pac-10 rushing champion to 47 yards on 14 carries in the Trojans' 30-3 thrashing of Cal, taking away the Bears' biggest offensive weapon throughout a chilly Saturday night.

    Mays has been waiting for this chance since the offseason, when Best playfully challenged him to a race down the hallway of a Los Angeles hotel to determine the Pac-10's fastest man.

    Although Best is a former track star, Mays' formidable football speed was enough to track him down on several plays.
