Forgive the Cardinal quarterback if he's short on words.
For the third straight season on The Farm, the year's biggest exams fall on the same week. Not only are the eighth-ranked Cardinal (11-2) finishing finals in the classroom, the Pac-12 champions are beginning preparation for the Rose Bowl against Big Ten winner Wisconsin on Jan. 1.
