Pac-12: Oregon's Mariota, UCLA's Hundley, six other QBs in spotlight

The Pac-12 once again is the Conference of Quarterbacks.

I'll always remember covering the league's Football Media Day in Los Angeles in July 2011, looking around the courtyard and seeing the likes of Arizona's Nick Foles, Arizona State's Brock Osweiler, Stanford's Andrew Luck and USC's Matt Barkley.

The overall talent level at the position may not be as great in 2014 as it was then, but there's no question that QB is the marquee position in the Pac-12. Eight schools have chosen quarterbacks as their offensive representative for next month's two-day event in Hollywood. The other four schools are Arizona, Colorado, Washington and Utah, which is sending receiver Dres Anderson (and defensive end Nate Orchard).
