Caleb Williams shines on USC debut, Knicks fight for Oregon

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — They’re all set in the University of Southern California mid-section, and Arizona may have just found the answer. Referee is still out in Oregon and definitely up in the air in Colorado.

Just a few quick judgments about Pac-12 during the first week, as QB’s play ranged from amazing to choppy.

The transfer four definitely shone: Caleb Williams for Troy ranked 10th, Jaden DeLaura for Arizona State, Michael Benicks Jr for Washington and Cameron Ward of Washington State. Not quite as much for Bo Nix of Oregon, who struggled in a 49-3 loss to defending champion Georgia – a loss that dropped the ducks from the rankings.

It was a rough time for some current league players as well, with Utah’s Cameron Rising throwing a interception in the end zone in the final seconds of a 29-26 loss to Florida. UTIS dropped six places to No. 13 in the most recent survey.

Colorado’s Brendon Lewis suffered a 38-13 loss to the TCU, which opened the door to reserve JT Shrout, a transfer from Tennessee who didn’t play last season after injuring his knee at fall camp in Colorado. Buffaloes coach Karl Durrell has yet to reveal how the shots are distributed going forward among the quarterbacks.

“But we have a plan ready,” Dorrell said.
