Pac-12 football boasts some unique, exciting talent on the offensive side of the ball. 

Cal’s Jared Goff is one of the elite passers; Oregon’s Royce Freeman can run the ball like no other. Washington State quarterback Luke Faulk seems to score every few seconds; Utah running back Devontae Booker is a threat to win the Heisman. But who leads the conference in points per game? 

ESPN.com’s Chantel Jennings points out that the answer may surprise you: None other than Utah place kicker Andy Phillips — who averages 9.5 points per game. Freeman comes next, with 9.4.
