Arizona, Utah and Washington State concluded spring practices Saturday with spring games, while a number of other teams scrimmaged. Here's a roundup.
- Arizona: A dominant passing attack was overshadowed by a late knee injury to linebacker Jake Fischer.
- Arizona State: The offense started slowly, but eventually found its rhythm.
- California: The offense was sloppy, but it appears Zach Maynard leads the quarterback competition. However, Allan Bridgford had the best day.
- Oregon State: The Beavers scrimmaged Friday, and there were seven holding penalties and too many injured players.
- USC: The Trojans' defense dominated. Penalties and youth did in the offense.
- Utah: While the defense was clearly in control, it appears freshman Tyler Shreve has pulled ahead in the competition to be backup quarterback behind Jordan Wynn.
- Washington: The Huskies' first-team defense allowed just one TD, and four of seven sacks came from end Josh Shirley. If you are looking for a unit for the "better than you might think" label, it might be the Huskies' defensive line.
- Washington State: The Cougars' starters routed the backups 38-3 in Spokane. And the best news is a mostly healthy end to spring practices.
