Elliot Harrison of NFL.com wanted to make a list of up-and-coming NFL players, so he tapped an all-under-25 NFL team, and nine of his 26 selections played in the Pac-12. Not only that, the conference, stereotyped as offense-first, had just as many defensive players -- four -- as offense.
Last weekend, Arizona's Matt Scott and USC's Matt Barkley led their teams to victory and played well. And you heard a lot more about Barkley than Scott. Barkley was brilliant, and Scott was just very good.
