Pac-12 college football teams are deep into spring practice, with several wrapping up those workouts this weekend by holding their spring games. Others will finish spring ball later in April.
Arizona State played its spring game on Friday, while Arizona, Stanford, USC and Utah will hit the field on Saturday. Four more schools are set to hold spring games on Saturday, April 21, and another two will do so on Saturday, April 28.

2018 Pac-12 spring football game previews, key storylines
Five Pac-12 schools have new head coaches for 2018, meaning the spring games will be the first opportunity for fans to see what their teams will look like under different leadership. The most high-profile of those coaching changes are at UCLA, where former Oregon coach Chip Kelly has returned from the pros to replace Jim Mora, and at Arizona where Kevin Sumlin comes over from Texas A&M as the successor to Rich Rodriguez.
Also new are Herm Edwards (Arizona), Mario Cristobal (Oregon) and Jonathan Smith (Oregon State), although Cristobal already has a game under his belt since he was the Ducks’ interim coach in the Las Vegas Bowl loss to Boise State in December.
Open starting positions abound throughout the conference, with four schools searching for new quarterbacks. UCLA and USC are looking for replacements for likely first-round NFL draft picks in Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold, respectively, with spring ball playing a key role in those competitions.
Other schools, like Arizona, Oregon, Stanford and Washington, are firmly set at that position with returning starters coming off strong 2017 seasons. Stanford and Washington bring back their leading rusher from last year as well, with Heisman Trophy runner-up Bryce Love returning to Stanford for his senior year and active Pac-12 rushing leader Myles Gaskin set for one more season at Washington.
