The PAC-12 had a rough opening weekend, with Washington falling to Auburn, Oregon State getting drubbed by Ohio State, and Arizona and UCLA dropping the ball in the coaching debuts with Kevin Sumlin’s squad falling at home to BYU, while Chip Kelly’s Bruins lost to Cincinnati.
Equally troublesome was the lack of production from the PAC-12’s Heisman Contenders. Khalil Tate looked lost against BYU’s defense, unable to find running lanes on the ground, and far overthrowing his receivers against a suspect BYU secondary.
And while Stanford easily handled San Diego State, Bryce Love recorded just 29 yards on 18 carries. Love was the odds on favorite to win the Heisman before the season started, and can certainly get himself back into that conversation throughout the season, he’s got ground to make up if he wants to cross the 2,000 yard plateau this year.
