High flying Pac 12 offenses meet on Friday night as the Oregon Ducks and Cal Golden Bears get set for battle.
Both teams use extreme pace and air the ball out, which could leave us in store for a high scoring affair.
The Ducks season is certainly hanging in the balance here.
After starting the season at 2-0, Oregon has dropped 4 straight, 3 of which coming against Pac 12 foes.
Oregon can already forget about competing for a Pac 12 title, now it’s about gaining bowl eligibility.
Oregon has 6 games remaining, with 4 coming on the road as they need to secure 4 wins to find themselves in the postseason.
Oregon’s defense has been the main blame for their struggles during this 4 game skid.
The Ducks allowed 70 points last game and on average have given up 42 points per game. Allowing 522 yards per game, Oregon has to buckle down defensively if they’re going to find any success.
While this isn’t the most ideal game for the Ducks defense, they’ll have to step up.
California Golden Bears
The California Golden Bears aren’t in necessarily the best situation in terms of the Pac 12 race either.
The Golden Bears are just 1-2 in conference play and at 3 wins, the schedule doesn’t get any easier for them. California dropped a high scoring affair to Oregon State last time out, as their comeback attempt fell just short.
California has dropped 2 of their last 3 games as they’ve conceded 51 and 47 points in both losses.
California will rely heavily on their offense on their pass offense, that is averaging 377.8 yards per game.
QB Davis Webb has tossed for 2256 yards while throwing for 22 touchdowns this season. Webb is dealing with a hand injury, but it is likely to play on Friday.
