When the Oregon Ducks faced Virginia on the road, it was supposed to be the first challenge of the season.

Then when the team faced Tennessee at home, it was supposed to be the first challenge of the season. Now, the team is set to face UW at Husky Stadium, and chances are, it will truly be the first real challenge of the season.

Oregon is 5-0 on the year and is winning its games in historic fashion. All five games have seen the Ducks score at least 55 points, and the team is winning by an average point margin of 47.4 points per contest. Offensively, this team is rolling as if Chip Kelly never left.

The better news is that the defense has been just as effective.

The Ducks are allowing the second-fewest point per game in the country, but it will be put to the test against a revamped Washington offense.


The Huskies have picked up the pace this season, utilizing their skill players and the speed that they offer. They’re averaging 37.4 points per game—21.4 more points than anyone has scored on the Ducks this season.

The Huskies, despite being 14-point underdogs in this one, have one thing going in their favor—home-field advantage. Husky Stadium is a dangerous place for any opponent, especially since the remodel. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

The talk this season has been about Washington’s offense, but the defense has stood out as well. The team is giving up just 14.8 points per contest, which is good enough for 11th in the county.

It did just give up 31 points to a high-powered Stanford team, but other than that, it is allowing fewer than 11 points per game.

Offensively, the team has been as good as advertised. It is 23rd in passing and 15th in rushing, and it finds itself at 4-1 at this point in the season. The bad news for the Huskies is that their offense has been unique to their opponents, but it won’t be unique for the Ducks. Oregon’s defense sees up-tempo, no huddle offenses every week in practice, and it should be prepared come Saturday.

What the Ducks may not be prepared for is a close game in the fourth quarter. The Ducks have yet to see an important final quarter this season, and that’s likely to change on Saturday, as this game has the makings of a classic.

The truth is that Oregon should come away with the win on the road, but Washington may not be as big of an underdog as the spread shows.

Oregon will be tested all the way through, and while a win straight up will be what it’s looking for, a loss ATS may just happen for the first time this season.

Score Prediction: Oregon 38 – Washington 27
