As aforementioned, the Ducks swim into this weekend’s action sporting a 5-1 record. Included in that record is a 2-1 performance in Pac – 12 play. This ranks Oregon 3rd overall in the North division of the Pac-12 conference. All in all Oregon has been having a highly successful season with their only loss of 2018 coming against No. 7 Stanford just two weeks ago. Naturally that 38-31 loss was a minor setback but the Ducks were able to bounce back in a big way by picking up back-to-back wins over No. 24 California and no. 7 Washington. Now Oregon looks to pick up another win over a Washington based school by dominant the Cougars this Saturday. The college football betting odds are siding against Oregon, which is surprising considering they rank No. 7 in the nation while Washington State is sitting at No. 25. However, since Oregon is 0-3 in their last 3 run-ins with the Cougars, it’s easy to see why the odds are the way they are.
Players to Watch: Justin Herbert (1,613 passing yards, 17 TD, 5 INT), CJ Verdell (531 rushing yards, 4 TD, 5.5 AVG), and Dillon Mitchell (561 receiving yards, 3 TD, 35 REC).
