The ESPN Pac-12 Blog recently released their look at the Pac-12 and the best players in the conference entering the 2014 season. We are now less than a month away from kickoff at Autzen with the Oregon Ducks hosting South Dakota and Ted Miller with Kevin Gemmell have four Oregon Ducks in their Top 25 list and three Oregon Ducks in their Top Ten including Center Hronoss Grasu at number ten, Cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olumu at number four and for the third year in a row Quarterback Marcus Mariota in the top spot at number one.
UCLA Quarterback Brett Hundley enters at number three because of his ‘scrambling ability’, which makes total sense. He did have some moments last season at Autzen Stadium facing the Oregon Ducks. Another Quarterback Arizona State’s Taylor Kelly was number five on the list showing again that the Pac-12 Conference of course has a favorite with the Oregon Ducks, but if they falter several other teams will likely use the Quarterback position to rise up the rankings to compete for a spot in the College Football Playoff.
Oregon Running Back Byron Marshall also made the Top 25 list at number twenty-two.
The Oregon Ducks again begin the season on Saturday, August 30th hosting South Dakota at 7:30pm Pacific Time. The game will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Networks.
