The Oregon Ducks host the UCLA Bruins as they meet in Pac-12 conference Week 12 college football action from Autzen Stadium in Eugene on Saturday.
The UCLA Bruins will look to build off of their first win of the season coming in the form of a 34-10 win over Cal last time out. Dorian Thompson-Robinson has thrown for 303 yards, 4 touchdowns and an interception on 50% passing while also leading the Bruins in rushing with 109 rushing yards this season. Greg Dulcich leads UCLA with 126 receiving yards and a touchdown while Demetric Felton has a team-high 7 grabs out of the backfield for the Bruins. Defensively, Stephan Blaylock leads UCLA with 11 total tackles including a team-high 9 solo tackles while Caleb Johnson has a sack for the Bruins through two games.
The Oregon Ducks will try to build on their 2-0 start to the year after a 43-29 win over Washington State last time out. Tyler Shough has thrown for 539 yards, 5 touchdowns and 2 interceptions on 67.9% passing while CJ Verdell leads the Ducks with 223 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns. Shough and Travis Dye each have 100+ rushing yards while Cyrus Habibi-Likio also has a pair of rushing scores this season. Jaylon Redd leads Oregon’s receiving group with 9 catches for 128 yards while the aforementioned Travis Dye and DJ Johnson each have a pair of touchdown grabs this season for Oregon. Defensively, Nick Pickett leads Oregon with 13 total tackles including a team-high 9 solo tackles. Noah Sewell also has a sack for Oregon this season.
UCLA is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a loss. Oregon is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games while the over is 20-7-1 in their last 28 home games against a team with a losing road record. UCLA is 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.
This feels like a lot of points to lay against a UCLA team that can score in bunches, but the problem is that this Oregon team is legit and have the defensive pieces to make life difficult for the Bruins. I can see this being a 41-20 or 45-20 game in favor of the Ducks, so I'll lay the points with Oregon in this spot.
