If you see an uptick in offensive line play this season in the Pac-12, look no further than the quality of centers in the conference. Over half of the Pac-12 centers are currently being considered for the Rimington Trophy watch list.
California Golden Bears center Addison Ooms. Ooms helped improve Cal to become one of the best pass protecting teams in the nation last season.
Washington Huskies center Coleman Shelton. Shelton anchors perhaps the best offensive line in the Pac-12.
Oregon Ducks center Jake Hanson. As long as Oregon can run the football, a Duck center will always be in contention to win this award.
Stanford Cardinal center Jesse Burkett. Can Burkett keep the tradition of Stanford offensive line excellence going?
Arizona Wildcats center Nathan Eldridge. Eldridge will need to have a good season for Arizona to return to bowl eligibility.
UCLA Bruins center Scott Quessenberry. Quessenberry has his hands full in trying to keep a struggling offensive line afloat.
Oregon State Beavers center Sumner Houston. Oregon State has an experienced team this season. Could Houston’s impressive ability up front keep the Beavers moving the right way?
