A Look Back: The Top 10 Pac-10 QB to WR Combinations Since 1990

The Pac-10 conference has long been known for their innovative offensive philosophies, playground style quarterbacks, and speedy athletes that overwhelmed the herculean defenses from east of the Rocky Mountains.

The stars have come and gone from the Pac-10. NFL Hall of Fame members walked the campuses from the great northwest, down to the hot deserts of Arizona, strolled the prestigious academic universities in the Bay Area, and took on the bright lights of Los Angeles.

The Pac-10 has had their fair share of coaches leading these offensive juggernauts year after year.

Bob Toledo and highly touted Cade Mcknown produced a "Hollywood action packed thrill ride" at UCLA in the late 90's.

Mike Bellotti propelled the Oregon program to a new level with Joey Harrington under center, and just down the road, Dennis Erickson and Mike Riley revitalized the Oregon State program in Corvallis.

The offenses in Tempe under Bruce Snyder and Dirk Koetter were nearly as hot as the temperature during sweltering Arizona summers.

Mike Price garnering much success in Pullman with Bledsoe, Leaf, and Gesser.

Jeff Tedford changed the whole mindset of the Golden Bears program, which peaked in 2004 when Tedford and Aaron Rodgers teamed up to win 10 games and nearly make the Rose Bowl for the first time since 1958.

However one coach knew how to stop the high powered passing attacks of the Pac-10, while relinquishing control of the offense to one Norm Chow.

The Pacific Ten record books have never been the same since USC's Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart took the stage at the historical L.A. Coliseum.

Take a look at a "Bleacher Report" tribute to the best passing attacks in the Pac-10 since 1990.
