OVR: B+OFF: B+DEF: B+SPT: C The Good:Matt Barkley and Robert Woods lead what could be the best offense in the Pac-12.The Bad:Holes abound on the defensive and special teams side of the ball.Season Outlook:USC has top 25 talent for sure, and that should lead them to a division title. OVR: B+OFF: B+DEF: B+SPT: C The Good:Lots of experience everywhere, and the defense could be the best in the conference.The Bad:ASU has yet to show it can turn potential into consistent winning in the Pac-12.Season Outlook:The South is weak this year, so expect the Sun Devils to make a run for the division title. OVR: B+OFF: B+DEF: BSPT: B+ The Good:The offensive line and secondary have experience, and Katz may be good enough at QB.The Bad:The loss of Jacquizz Rodgers is enough, but the defensive front has also lost a lot of talent.Season Outlook:Lack of star power means the Beavers could have a rough road to hoe in the North.
