Scoring in the Pac-10

This weekend, the scoreboards lit up around the Pacific 10 Conference. Every team scored at least 28 points, and the conference as a whole averaged 34.4 points per game.

Oregon is leading the nation in scoring offense with an average of 56.6 points per game and total offense with 569.2 yards per game.

Arizona’s defense

This was supposed to be the problem area for head coach Mike Stoops and the Wildcats?

Arizona is ranked second in total defense, having not given up a touchdown in three of its four games this season. An opponent has only crossed the goal line four times this season, and all four times have been passing touchdowns. Those four are the second fewest touchdowns in nation.

Oregon State Beavers

After a rocky start to the season against BCS darlings TCU and Boise State, the Beavers finally got their heads on straight against ASU, even without the help of James Rodgers.

The wide receiver Rogers is expected to start against Arizona this weekend, and the Beavers have some defensive power of their own. Stephen Paea had two sacks last weekend at ASU

USC’s chances in the Pac

Oregon has seized control of the conference in the last two seasons, leaving the usually dominant Trojans less on the totem poll in terms of Pac-10 dominance. A last second loss to Washington certainly didn’t help restore it. The Trojans have a difficult task in Stanford this week, and the Cardinal will be looking to get some revenge after being victims to a Duck comeback last week.

Bruins air attack

UCLA ranks last or second to last in theses categories: Turnovers, turnover margin, scoring offense, passing efficiency and passing offense.

Someone needs to help out the Bruins passing attack and quickly.

Quarterback Kevin Prince didn’t play against Washington State due to a sprained knee, but that hasn’t been his only ailment this season. Prince has been plagued by back and shoulder injuries throughout the year.

Arizona State Sun Devils

Well, it doesn’t look like it will be the Sun Devils’ turn this year. Three straight, although close, losses have ASU on the outside looking in this season.
