There is a little quarterback controversy brewing in Tempe between Brock Osweiler and Steven Threet.
Arizona State coach Dennis Erickson didn't pause.
UCLA defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough didn't care.
And UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel just kind of shrugged and laughed.
There may or may not be a quarterback controversy at Arizona State heading into Friday's game against UCLA in Tempe.
Which would qualify as a fairly large story line in most games, but both UCLA (4-6) and the Sun Devils (4-6) have much larger issues to concern themselves with than whether junior Steven Threet or sophomore Brock Osweiler starts at quarterback for Arizona State.
Larger issues like having to win out to salvage 6-6 seasons and have a shot at playing in a bowl game.
"We're at about the same place with our programs," Erickson said on his weekly conference call. "We both have an opportunity to compete in our last two football games.
"We're both playing with a lot of young players. We've both lost close games, so yeah, we're very, very similar."
