Thursday night, third-ranked Oregon (6-0, 3-0 Pac-12 North) travels to Arizona State (5-1, 3-0 Pac-12 South) in a battle for conference supremacy led by two underclassmen quarterbacks in Arizona State's Taylor Kelly and Oregon's Marcus Mariota.

The top teams in their respective divisions are the feature game on Thursday—for good reason. Featuring two of the best young QBs in college football, these teams put up points in a hurry.

Mariota is a freshman, while Kelly is a sophomore. In a conference that has produced numerous NFL QBs, Mariota and Kelly have quietly produced at a high rate. If it weren’t for Southern California’s Matt Barkley, these two would be the talk of the conference at the position.

Here’s a look at the two best young QBs in the conference and who will come out on top Thursday night.
