Ground games in high gear across Pac-12

Sep 10, 2014 7:21 PM

PHOENIX (AP) - While the quarterbacks deservedly get most of the attention in the Pac-12, the conference has some teams that are pretty good at running the ball, too.

Though it's still early in the season and some of the opponents haven't exactly been stellar, the Pac-12 has churned out yards on the ground with six teams averaging over 200 per game.

Arizona State leads the way with 345 per game and D.J. Foster tops the conference with 363 in two games.

Arizona no longer has two-time All-American Ka'Deem Carey, but Terris Jones-Grigsby and freshman Nick Wilson have been sharp the first two games.

Oregon has been one of the nation's best rushing teams the past seven seasons and USC, known as Tailback U, has another group of talented runners.
