Fanbases follow the headlines coming out of fall camp to get a feel for who the starters are going to be heading into the season.

For no position is that more true than for a team’s quarterback, the most important position (arguably) in all of sports.

With less than one month to go in the season, some teams have a clearer picture of their quarterback room than others.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I look at the most interesting quarterback situations heading into 2022.

The team that jumps out with the most uncertainty is Washington, which has three guys in their QB room that could feasibly be their starting quarterback in 2022.

Washington football pac-12Michael Penix Jr. likely has the advantage, but there’s a case to be made for former 5-star QB Sam Huard, and to let him endure growing pains this year to build for the future.

Beyond the Huskies, are there any glaring question marks at QB for other Pac-12 schools?

I go through each team’s quarterback room to give an idea of who the Pac-12’s signal callers should be in 2022—a season that starts in less than a month.

Some have no questions at all, a couple have nothing BUT questions it seems, and many are somewhere in between.
