The most common phrase I hear from Pac-12 coaches on Washington is, "No weaknesses." But the emergence of two quarterbacks -- Utah's Troy Williams and USC's Sam Darnold -- will test Washington's fast and physical defense. Darnold has the big numbers but both are natural playmakers who won't be intimidated by Washington's line and secondary. Washington visits Utah on Saturday and hosts USC on Nov. 12.

Sonny Dykes on Cal's scheduling disadvantage vs USC: "We looked like a tired beat up football team and we were. I said it last week. It's a travesty whoever scheduled this game to schedule us back-to-back weekday games on six days rest to play a team on the road on an open day. I hope the Pac-12 doesn't do this again to another school. It's not right for the kids. It's not right for the players. They've had to miss a bunch of class. Everyone talks about student-athlete welfare and didn't put their money where their mouth is on that one."
