Oregon has looked pretty good so far this year through three games, but did have a tight escape this past weekend. The Ducks didn’t have much trouble with Stanford in a 35-14 win or Washington State in a 43-29 win during their first pair. The UCLA game was tight however, as Oregon eventually prevailed 38-35.
In the win over UCLA, Oregon quarterback Tyler Shough posted 334 yards with three touchdowns on 19-of-30 passing. Travis Dye managed 10 carries for 40 yards, and Devon Williams led the receivers on 123 yards from six grabs.

Oregon is 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall and 4-1 ATS versus a team with a losing record. The Ducks are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven Friday games.
Meanwhile, the Beavers are 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall and 5-1 ATS in their last six conference games. Oregon State is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last six Friday games.
PICK: I’m going to stick with Oregon in this one. The Beavers have been pretty permissive on defense so far, giving up at least 27 points in each game. The Ducks have surrendered a combined 64 points in their last pair themselves, but they’ve also countered by scoring a combined 81 in that time. The Oregon State offense can move pretty well when they’re clicking, but I don’t think they’ve got the stamina to keep up with Oregon on the scoreboard here.
