Who's hot and who's not in the Pac-12?

Here's a random sampling.

Hot: Barkley to Woods

Seventeen of USC quarterback Matt Barkley's 34 completions against Minnesota went to receiver Robert Woods -- good for 177 yards and three touchdowns.

Not: Colorado's offensive line

The Buffaloes gave up seven sacks and led a rushing attack that net just 17 yards.

Hot: UCLA's offense

Sure, the Bruins lost at Houston, but it wasn't the offense's fault. The Bruins rolled up 554 yards, including 232 on the ground.

Not: Washington's defense

The Huskies gave up an eye-popping 504 yards -- 473 yards passing -- to FCS power Eastern Washington.

Hot: Arizona quarterback Nick Foles

Foles completed 81 percent of his passes against Northern Arizona for 412 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions.

Not: UCLA DE Datone Jones

Reporters have been celebrating Jones' potential for two years. A broken foot ended his chances in 2010, but he's healthy now. And two tackles at Houston doesn't cut it.

Hot: Washington kicker Erik Folk

Folk was 3-for-3 on field goals against Eastern Washington, with a long of 53 yards.

Not: Oregon running back Kenjon Barner

Filling in for the suspended Cliff Harris, Barner had negative-6 yards on three punt returns against LSU, including an ill-advised decision not to fair catch that led to his being stripped on a fumble return for a touchdown. He also rushed for just seven yards on four carries and left the game with a sprained ankle.

Hot: Stanford backup quarterback Brett Nottingham

Nottingham was 2-for-2 for 46 yards with a touchdown against San Jose State. That translates to a 458.2 efficiency rating, which is 312 points better than starter Andrew Luck. quarteback controversy?

Not: Oregon State's pass defense

The Beavers rank last in the conference in pass efficiency defense after playing -- and losing to -- an FCS team. The Beavers yielded four touchdown passes to Sacramento State and a 63.9 percent completion rate.
