Not to sound like a broken record, but the Pac-12 might be in store for some record-breaking performances in 2022.

With a trio of Heisman contenders at quarterback, some of the top receiving groups in college football and a handful of standout defensive players, the final season of this version of the Pac-12 should be quite exciting.

It starts with Caleb Williams, of course, the reigning Heisman winner broke all sorts of USC records last year, and though the league marks are likely out of his reach, he could further distance himself in Heritage Hall. Oregon QB Bo Nix and Washington QB Michael Penix Jr. are vying for some pretty big marks, as well.

Here’s a look at some of the biggest records that could go down this year…

Pac-12 season completion percentage

Record holder: Tyler Huntley, 73.1, 2019

Contender(s): Bo Nix, Oregon

Nix nearly set the mark last year, but he was slowed down by 3 consecutive bad (by his standards) games to end the regular season, when he completed 67.9, 67.6 and 65.9% of his passes. He bounced back with a steller 23-of-30 (76.7%) performance in a Holiday Bowl win over North Carolina, which bumped him up to 71.9 on the season, tied with Kedon Slovis for No. 2 in Pac-12 history. Forget his 14 rushing touchdowns last year — Nix’s accuracy was his true weapon.

Pac-12 season passing efficiency rating

Record holder: Marcus Mariota, 181.7, 2014

Contender(s): Caleb Williams, Bo Nix, Michael Penix

Before Williams’ explosive 2022 campaign, the Pac-12’s last magical Heisman season in 2014 was one of the best performances by a quarterback in college football history. Mariota’s rating puts him in exclusive territory — he is the only conference QB to top the vaunted 180.0 mark. Williams (168.5) and Nix (165.7) were on the verge in 2022, but Penix trailed quite far (151.3). All 3 have the tools to build off brilliant seasons last year.

Pac-12 season passing yardage

Record holder: Anthony Gordon, 5,579, 2019

Contender(s): Michael Penix

This one just might be out of reach. Seriously — Gordon threw for fewer than 300 yards just once, topped 400 9 times and 500 twice. He even hit 600 yards. In one game. But if anyone do it this year it’s Penix, who led the nation in passing yards per game with 357.0 last year. If he was starting from scratch this year it would be one thing, but the Huskies return a fantastic receiving corps and all the core coaches responsible for Penix’s resurrection last year. That’s the thing: Last year, in his first season in purple after transferring from Indiana, Penix took people by surprise. He’s certainly a known quantity now.

Pac-12 career passing yards per attempt

Record holder: Marcus Mariota, 9.3, 2012-14

Contender(s): Caleb Williams

Some Pac-12 passers have put together some prolific individual seasons, but none has been as consistent as Mariota, who owns the record for career passing yards per attempt. If Williams stacks another year of downfield looks, he’ll compete with Mariota for top billing, even if he didn’t spend his whole career in the Pac-12. Williams averaged 9.1 yards per attempt as a freshman and as a sophomore, and his receiving corps is even deeper this year.

Pac-12 career field goal percentage

Record holder: Matt Gay, 86.2, 2017-18

Contender(s): Joshua Karty

Coming off the best season by a kicker in Pac-12 history, hitting all 18 of his field-goal attempts, Karty is on the verge of something truly special. One more season of similar stats would put him in the category of most accurate kicker in Pac-12 history. He’s connected on 84.85% (28-of-33) of his kicks so far — that would put him 3rd all time, if not for the 50 minimum attempts.

Passing attempts by a USC quarterback in a season

Record holder: Caleb Williams, 500, 2022

Contender(s): Caleb Williams

Well, we know he won’t compete with the league mark, which was set by Connor Halliday under the great Mike Leach (RIP, Pirate) in 2013. But Williams could very well top his mark of 500 this year, even if that wouldn’t really be a good thing. Williams had to throw so much last season because the awful USC defense allowed teams to stay in games long after they were decided. Paradoxically, Williams’ Heisman-winning numbers might fall from last season and the Trojans could be better, as the defense should be improved.

Receiving yards by a Washington receiver duo in a season

Record holder: Rome Odunze and Jalen McMillan, 2,243, 2022

Contender(s): Rome Odunze and Jalen McMillan

Odunze and McMillan might be the top receiving duo in the country, and when you add Ja’Lynn Polk into the fold, the Huskies boast one heck of a trio of targets. Last year, the Huskies’ had one of the best passing games in program history, but they stand to be even better this year, with Kalen DeBoer and Ryan Grubb speeding things up even more. It’s a scary thought to imagine what Washington will look like once they get rolling this season.

Receiving touchdowns by an Oregon receiver in a season

Record holder: Josh Huff (2013) and Jeff Maehl (2010), 12

Contender(s): Troy Franklin

Talk about coming in hot: Franklin finished last year with touchdowns in 4 consecutive games, and he’s just getting started. An all-conference 2nd-team selection by conference coaches, Franklin tied for the conference lead in touchdown receptions with 9, to go with 61 receptions and 891 yards. Unlike crowded receiver rooms at Washington and USC, Franklin stands out as the Ducks’ top target. If he and Nix start clicking early, he’ll smash this Oregon record.

Interceptions by a USC player in a season

Record holder: Ronnie Lott (1980) and Dennis Thurman (1976), 8

Contender(s): Calen Bullock

Bullock wasn’t just in the right place at the right time often last season, he was one of the biggest ballhawks in college football. An ideal centerfielder who got great breaks on the ball, Bullock might be asked to tone down his ultra aggressive ways this year. Or, after ranking 2nd in the Pac-12 in interceptions last year with 5, Bullock might be even more prolific.
