    [​IMG]Who's hot and who's not in the Pac-12?

    Here's a random sampling.*

    Hot: Woods to Barkley

    17 of USC QB Mat Barkley's 34 completions against Minnesota went to receiver Robert Wood for 177 yards and three TDs.

    Not: Colorado's offensive line

    The Buffaloes gave up seven sacks and led a rushing attack that netting just 17 yards.

    Hot: UCLA's offense

    Sure, the Bruins lost at Houston, but it wasn't the offense's fault. The Bruins rolled up 554 yards, including 232 on the ground.

    Not: Washington's defense

    The Huskies gave up an eye-popping 504 yards -- 473 yards passing -- to FCS power Eastern Washington.

    Hot: Arizona QB Nick Foles

    Foles completed 81 percent of his passes against Northern Arizona for 412 yards with five TDs and no interceptions.

    Not: UCLA DE Datone Jones

    Reporters have been celebrating Jones' potential for two years. A broken foot ended his chances in 2010, but he's healthy now. And two tackles at Houston doesn't cut it.

    Hot: Washington kicker Erik Folk

    Folk was 3-for-3 on field goals against Eastern Washington, with a long of 53 yards.

    Not: Oregon RB Kenjon Barner

    Filling in for the suspended Cliff Harris, Barner had negative-6 yards on three punt returns against LSU, including an ill-advise decision not to fair catch that led to his being stripped on a fumble return for a TD. He also rushed for just seven yards on four carries and left the game with a sprained ankle.

    Hot: Stanford backup QB Brett Nottingham

    Nottingham was 2-for-2 for 46 yards with a TD against San Jose State. That translates to a 458.2 efficiency rating, which is 312 points better than starter Andrew Luck. QB controversy?

    Not: Oregon State's pass defense

    The Beavers rank last in the conference in pass efficiency defense after playing -- and losing to -- an FCS team. The Beavers yielded four TD passes to Sacramento State and a 63.9 percent completion rate.
