With a top-10 rushing offense and a slightly above average defense, Oregon State has to feel it’s closed the gap a bit on its rival. The Oregon Ducks are still the more talented team, and they’ve beaten up on teams at home, but a lot of air has left the balloon after that loss to Utah. Just how motivated at the Ducks now? Can Oregon still bring that energy, with the playoffs out of the question? Give me the free touchdown.
