        I think in order for us to win the south, we need to hit a couple of benchmarks:

        1 – we need to average 34 points per game. Reality: 27. Status: Failing. Trending: Up.
        1a – In PAC-12 play, we are averaging 31 points per game. Status: Almost There.
        2 – we need to average 225 yards passing per game. Reality: 254 yards. Status: Achieving. Trending: Even.
        2a – In PAC-12 play, we are averaging 270 yards passing per game. Status: Achieving.
        3 – we need to average <1 TO per game. Reality: 2.5. Status: FAILING. Trending: Up.
        3a – In PAC-12 play, we are averaging 1 TO per game. Status: Achieving.
        4 – we need to force >2 TO per game. Reality: 2.8. Status: Achieving. Trending: Up.
        4a – In PAC-12 play, we are forcing 3 TO’s per game. Status: Achieving.
        5 – we need to average 175 yards rushing per game. Reality: 173. Status: Achieving. Trending: Up.
        5a – In PAC-12 play, we are averaging 186 yards rushing per game. Status: Achieving.
        6 – we need to average >4.8 yards per carry. Reality: 4.3. Status: Almost There. Trending: Down.
        6a – In PAC-12 play, we are averaging 4.3 yards rushing per game. Status: Almost There.
        7 – we need to hold opponents to less than 120 yards rushing per game. Reality: 132. Status: Failing. Trending: Down.
        7a- In PAC-12 play, we are giving up 132 yards per game rushing. Status: Failing.
        8 – we need to hold opponents to less than 24 points per game. Reality: 16 pts per game. Status: Achieving. Trending: Down.
        8a – In PAC-12 play, we are giving up 16 points per game. Status: Achieving.

        So far: 5/8 (7/8 in PAC-12 Play). All things considered, even with some flaws, we are playing really good football right now. Every team in the PAC-12 is flawed, but we have a very “complete” team. Our holes aren’t tragic, and we have no real flaws. Pretty dang good.

        Previous Weeks:
        5/8
        2/7.
