In the wake of Oregon’s success, Pac-12 hurries up

ANNE M. PETERSON, AP Sports Writer

Taking a cue from Oregon’s success with the blur offense, a majority of the Pac-12 has moved to some type of hurry-up, no-huddle system.

Washington and Utah installed up-tempo offenses this season, joining the other teams that had already jumped on the bandwagon. Cal brought in new head coach Sonny Dykes, whose Bear Raid is peeling off more than 90 plays per game.

Holdouts still running largely pro-style offenses include Oregon State, Stanford and USC — and there’s no telling where the Trojans are headed now that Lane Kiffin is gone.

The two contrasting styles will be on display this Saturday night when the No. 15 Huskies visit the No. 5 Cardinal at Stanford Stadium.
