When the Class of 2012 was finalized, it appeared the Pac-12 had secured a solid crop of quarterbacks. Four of the nation's top 12 and six of the top 26 were headed to -- or staying on -- the West Coast.
A few storylines to keep an eye on in Week 3. B1G tests: The Pac-12 faces the Big Ten four times this week. The league went 4-1 last season against its Rose Bowl partners, including Stanford's win over Wisconsin in the Grand Daddy.
It all seemed so simple before Week 1 of last year. Six quarterback competitions, six resolutions before the first game of the year. Taylor Kelly had won the gig at ASU. Jordan Webb set foot on campus and was almost instantly Colorado's starter.
Javelle Allen (Prosper, Texas), one of the nation's most under-rated quarterback prospects, has been selected by new Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez to run his high-powered attack in the Pac-12, multiple sources report.
