What's the most impressive unit in the Pac-12? Oregon's offense? Stanford's defense? Something else I'm missing?
Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: Oregon's offense is the obvious choice, and probably the right one, but it's time that their defense gets some credit. In their two most challenging games thus far - Washington and UCLA, their offense played well, but it was really their strength on defense that made the difference and prevented teams from getting into shootouts with them. For all the hoopla about time of possession not mattering for Oregon, that's primarily because they have a rock solid defense.
Chris Landon, UW Dawg Pound: Saying the Ducks' offense is cliche. So, I'll go with the group that has surprised me the most: the USC D has a top 3 FEI ranking and has been every bit as good as the vaunted Stanford D over a similar schedule and under much more difficult circumstances. Let's give Troy some love.
