Reviewing spring scrimmages and games

Arizona State, UCLA and USC concluded spring practices Saturday with spring games, while a number of other teams scrimmaged. Here's a roundup.
- I've sensed some skepticism as I've toured the Pac-12 about Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler. Well, consider this from Doug Haller's story on the Sun Devils spring game: "Osweiler, who has just two career starts, was brilliant, the best he has been all spring, completing 17 of 22 for 237 yards and five touchdowns without an interception." Notes and stats here.
- Is Zach Maynard making a push to be No. 1 at quarterback coming out of spring practices?
- Oregon State scrimmaged on Friday, and the star was backup quarterback Cody Vaz.
- UCLA heads into the offseason unresolved at quarterback, and offensive coordinator Mike Johnson wasn't terribly pleased overall. And for good reason.
- Things weren't easy for USC quarterback Matt Barkley, who was working with a patchwork lineup. Said Lane Kiffin, "It wasn't a real game." Kiffin is unsure which way the Trojans are pointed.
- Both LA schools finish spring practices with as many questions as answers.
- Washington coach Steve Sarkisian has done little to tip his hand on who might replace Jake Locker at quarterback, but Keith Price might have inched ahead of Nick Montana.
