Stat attack! Some Week 2 Pac-12 numbers

By Ted Miller

Here is a quick look at some Pac-12 numbers and how they stack up nationally.

You can see week one numbers here.

Pass efficiency (number is national rank)

7. Taylor Kelly, Arizona State

9. Matt Barkley, USC

18. Brett Hundley, UCLA

22. Marcus Mariota, Oregon

Note: Arizona's Matt Scott has the most yards at 707  -- first in Pac-12, fourth in nation -- but only ranks 41st -- sixth in the Pac-12 -- in passing efficiency. Barkley has 10 TD passes, most in the nation.

Rushing

1. Johnathan Franklin, UCLA, 215.5 yards per game

9. Ka'Deem Carey, Arizona, 136.5

11. Kenjon Barner, Oregon, 133.5

Note: So who wins the Pac-12 rushing title?

Scoring

3 (tie). Ka'Deem Carey, RB Arizona, 15 ppg (5 TDS)

3. Marqise Lee, WR, USC, 15 (5 TDS)

3. De'Anthony Thomas, RB/WR, Oregon, 15 (5 TDS)

3. Kenjon Barner, RB, Oregon 15 (5 TDS)

12. Robert Woods, WR, USC 12 (4 TDs)

12. Johnathan Franklin, RB, UCLA 12 (4 TDs)

Note: Carey looks like a breakout player. Thomas is only averaging 16.6 yards per carry, way down from his Rose Bowl average. Lee and Woods are good at finding the end zone, eh?

Rushing offense

2. UCLA, 343.5 yards

3. Oregon, 331.5

23. Arizona State, 248.5

Note: Arizona State averaged 129 yards rushing per game last year.

8. Oregon, 568

9. Arizona, 562.5

17. Arizona State, 532

 Total defense

7. Oregon State, 207 yards per game
