Marcus Mariota QB Oregon 8/5
Mariota didn't explode against Cal last week partly due to playing in a torrential downpour, but held onto his odds with an impressive stat line and another comfortable win. One problem that could jump up for Mariota though, is if he stats become limited due to the Ducks obliterating opponents in the first half.
Brett Hundley QB UCLA 18/1
Hundley greatly improved his odds during UCLA's non-conference slate, now he needs to prove that he deserves it in Pac-12 play.
De'Anthony Thomas RB Oregon 25/1
Thomas' odds dropped after suffering an ankle sprain on the opening kickoff of the Ducks' Pac-12 opener against Cal. His odds could continue to be hurt, and open things up further for Mariota, if the injury keeps him out for a week or two.
Kevin Hogan QB Stanford 25/1
Hogan's odds are pretty much tied to Stanford's record, so they are looking pretty good now with the Cardinal sitting at 4-0 with two dominating wins over Pac-12 opponents.
Ka'Deem Carey - Dropped Out
Carey needs to lead the nation in rushing again and have Arizona legitimately compete for the Pac-12 title but both of those campaigns look like they are going to come up short at the moment after Carey was outgained by Washington's Bishop Sankey in a loss to the Huskies last Saturday.
