Spring weekend wrap-up

Stanford and Colorado both concluded spring practices over the weekend with their spring games, while a number of Pac-12 teams held scrimmages. Here's a recap.

Stanford: Quarterback Andrew Luck completed 16 of 22 passes for 165 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Cardinal to a 42-3 victory over the White before an estimated crowd of 6,800 at San Francisco's Kezar Stadium. Tight end Zach Ertz concluded an impressive spring by catching all three TD passes. Tight end/fullback Ryan Hewitt caught four passes for 61 yards, while sophomore running back Anthony Wilkerson rushed for 65 yards on six carries. Some more details here.

Colorado: The Buffaloes played under the lights in front of 15,655 fans, using a scrimmage format of offense versus defense because of injuries that kept nearly 20 players off the field. While Tyler Hansen almost certainly will be named the starting QB on Tuesday, Nick Hirschman completed 11 of 19 passes for 170 yards and two touchdowns in the game and five of the seven scoring drives by the offense. Two of those TD passes went to redshirt freshman tight end Kyle Slavin. Walk-on running back Josh Ford rushed for a game-high 164 yards on 17 carries, including a 56-yard touchdown run. Rodney Stewart added 55 yards on 14 carries and Tony Jones rushed 12 times for 55 yards and also caught a 31-yard screen pass. Some quotes. More here, including stats and play-by-play.

As for the scrimmages:

Arizona: The Wildcats rediscovered their running game in their second scrimmage.

Arizona State: The defense was in control for the Sun Devils.

California: Walk-on running back Mike Manuel, a transfer from Golden West Community College, starred for the Bears, while QB Allan Bridgford had three TD passes playing with the second team.

Oregon: The Ducks defense got the coveted black jerseys back on competition Friday, though it's less inspiring that receiver Josh Huff got hurt.

Oregon State: The Beavers offense didn't look good on Friday, but a lot of key players were sitting out. And there were plenty of big hits.

UCLA: The Bruins defense had 18 tackles for a loss and nine sacks.

USC: The Trojans offense figures to include a bunch of Barkley-to-Woods.

Utah: The Utes were scheduled to scrimmage Saturday but it was called up due to bad weather and was rescheduled for Monday.

Washington: The Huskies didn't scrimmage.

Washington State: The Cougars defense was in control.
