Pac-12: Dong Baldwin
Who's running with a bull market? Who's battling the bears (not the Golden ones)?
- Arizona, Arizona State, California and Oregon: The competition was questionable, sure, but all four looked good in specific ways that suggested optimism over preseason expectations is entirely reasonable.
- Receivers: Arizona's Juron Criner, California's Keenan Allen, Oregon's Jeff Maehl, Stanford's Doug Baldwin, USC's Ronald Johnson and Washington State's Marquess Wilson turned in big-time performances.
- Matt Barkley, Nick Foles and Andrew Luck: Three of the four QBs who went to New York to represent the conference to East Coast media turned in big performances in the opener.
- Kenjon Barner: Is there a nickname for the Oregon backfield combination of Barner and LaMichael James? The Electric Company? LaFast and the Grand Kenjon? The Accelerating Anatidaes?
- Mason Foster: The Washington linebacker had 14 tackles at BYU and looked like the best defensive player on the field.
- UCLA, USC, Washington and Washington State: These four showed us less than we expected to see in Week 1.
- Run defense: Not to beat a dead horse or anything, but Oregon State, UCLA and Washington State got run over in their openers.
- Jake Locker: Locker had solid numbers at BYU, but his Heisman Trophy candidacy needed a victory and it didn't get it.
- USC's defense: Monte Kiffin's lauded Cover 2 got sliced and diced by Hawaii.
- Paul Wulff: Although there were hints of potential, there's no getting around the fact that Washington State wasn't competitive at Oklahoma State.
