Pac-12Through six weeks of football this year, there are five Pac-12 teams that are currently averaging over 40 points per game. Conversely, five teams are allowing less than 25 points per game at this point.

So who’s been the most impressive on each side of the ball in the conference at this time?

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I look at how each team is performing on both sides of the ball midway through the 2022 regular season.
