Pac 10  


For Under The Tree: For Sonny Dykes to magically discover a defense that never existed this season at Louisiana Tech.
In The Stocking: For Sonny Dykes to beat a team other than UTSA - who sort of doesn't count - that will finish a season with more than seven wins.

For Under The Tree: The San Diego Chargers and Philadelphia Eagles to realize that Chip Kelly probably isn't the right fit.
In The Stocking: For the NCAA committee on infractions to be as competent as, well, the NCAA committee on infractions.

Oregon State
For Under The Tree: A rushing game that's at least half as productive as Oregon's.
In The Stocking: Some semblance of a return game.

For Under The Tree: The defensive front seven to continue to be as aggressive and the pass rush as productive.
In The Stocking: For Kevin Hogan to continue to win more big games than Andrew Luck did.

For Under The Tree: For the offense to make the jump up in production from 2012 to 2013 like the defense did from 2011 to 2012.
In The Stocking: A full year of Bishop Sankey as strong as the second half of 2012.

Washington State
For Under The Tree: A few more rushing yards for the team that finished dead last in the nation on the ground.
In The Stocking: An offensive line that can do a wee bit better at protecting the quarterback after allowing a nation-worst 57 sacks.

For Under The Tree: For the defense that RichRod brought over from Michigan to go back to Ann Arbor.
In The Stocking: Ka'Deem Carey to continue to make the most of the holes he got to run through in 2012.

Arizona State
For Under The Tree: An offensive line that can protect the passer from time to time.
In The Stocking: A pass rush and defensive front that can do that again on a regular basis.

For Under The Tree: To be as good as San Jose State.
In The Stocking: A secondary that can stop a deep ball.

For Under The Tree: A lot more time for Brett Hundley to work after operating behind a leaky line.
In The Stocking: Jim Mora, Jr. to lose the itch that all former NFL head coaches have to become an NFL head coach again.

For Under The Tree: A tackle against the run against teams that can actually run the ball.
In The Stocking: Max Wittek to be as good a representative for the school as Matt Barkley has been.

For Under The Tree: A healthy and consistent quarterback.
In The Stocking: To stop playing like a Mountain West team trying to find its way in the Pac-12 world.
