Statistics after the first week of the season don't mean much. But that doesn' mean we can't take a look.
Pass efficiency (number is national rank)
8. Taylor Kelly, Arizona State
9. Marcus Mariota, Oregon
15. Matt Barkley, USC
28. Brett Hundley, UCLA
Note: Three new QBs obviously gave their coaches what the most wanted: Efficiency.
4. UCLA, 343 yards
11. Arizona State, 305
13. Oregon, 297
25. Arizona, 237

3. UCLA, 646 yards
6. Arizona, 624
8. Oregon, 605

Note: Last year at Arizona State, Bruins offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone threw the ball all over the place. He apparently is as comfortable running the ball as passing it.
3. Utah, 114 yards
19. Arizona State, 237
22. USC, 254
Note: The Trojans defense, despite missing two starters up front, played well against Hawaii, though the Warriors offensive line featured four new starters.

20. Colorado, 3
Note: UCLA had 14 sacks all last season.

3. Travis Long, Washington State, 2
14. Marquis Flowers, Arizona, 1.5
