ORE -2.5 O/U 50.5
The Oregon Ducks are set to visit Husky Stadium in Seattle, Washington for a Pac-12 clash against the Washington Huskies. The Oregon Ducks come into this matchup with a 5-1 record, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent home game against the Colorado Buffaloes, 45-3. QB Justin Herbert had a big game through the air for the Oregon Ducks as he threw for 261 yards and 2 TDs. RB C.J. Verdell had a big game on the ground for the Ducks as he ran for 171 yards on 14 carries while Cyrus Habibi-Likio contributed 3 rushing TDs.
The Oregon Ducks were very good on the defensive side of the ball against the Colorado Buffaloes as they held them to 3 points and a total of 299 yards of offense. Junior LB Sampson Niu led the way for the Oregon defense with 9 tackles. Freshman CB Verone McKinley III had a productive game from the secondary as he hauled in 2 interceptions while LB Bryson Young and DB Nick Pickett also contributed interceptions.
The Washington Huskies come into this matchup with a 5-2 record, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent road game against the Arizona Wildcats, 51-27. QB Jacob Eason had a productive game through the air for the Huskies as he connected on 15 of his 22 pass attempts for 243 yards and 2 TDs. The ground attack was extremely effective for Washington as Sean McGrew ran for 106 yards while Salvon Ahmed totaled 95 yards and 3 TDs.
The Washington Huskies were solid on the defensive side of the ball as they held the high-powered Arizona Wildcats to 27 points while also forcing 4 turnovers. Sophomore LB Ariel Ngata led the way for the Washington defense with 8 tackles and 1 TFL. Senior DL Josiah Bronson was able to get into the Arizona backfield a handful of times as he contributed 2 TFL and 1 sack. Junior LB Ryan Bowman had a productive game for the Huskies as he contributed 1 sack and 1 interception.
The Oregon Ducks have been very good to open the season, especially on the defensive side of the ball as they rank 3rd in college football in points allowed. The Ducks have a potential 1st overall pick under center with Justin Herbert, and the QB has played like it as he has already racked up 1602 yards, 17 TDs, and 1 interception. The Washington Huskies was supposed to be one of the top teams in the Pac-12 this season, but they have already dropped 2 games which concerns me. Washington has an upgrade at QB from previous years with Jacob Eason, but Oregon is keeping opponents off the scoreboard this season which should allow Herbert and the offense to run away with this game.
