It’s kind of funny that both Nevada and Oregon are playing each other week two because both were on the opposite ends of how their respective games ended.
Nevada ended up coming back from a 17 point deficit to upset Purdue on a walk off 56 yard field goal. Oregon ended up blowing a 15 point lead with about twenty minutes left in the game.
It was the best of times and it was the worst of times.
Freshman quarterback Carson Strong put up a gutsy effort in leading his team back versus Purdue. Strong put the ball up 51 times and ended up with just under 300 yards, but most importantly he threw for three touchdowns and no interceptions.
It is worth noting that the Wolfpack did a good job in the run game holding Purdue to under 100 yards and less than three half yards per attempt.
Plus, the Wolfpack defense was able to create three turnovers intercepting the ball twice and forcing a recovered fumble.
They’ll be going into hostile territory in Eugene and we’ll have to see just how both teams mindsets are. Is Nevada still overjoyed with their miracle victory? Or are they going to ride that momentum into Oregon?
The Oregon Ducks clearly outplayed the Auburn Tigers, yet, they ended up on the losing end once the triple zeros flashed on the scoreboard.
Almost like a boxing match where clearly one fighter is winning, but the other fighter is just hanging around and wins a few uninteresting swing rounds and before you know it, it’s a close fight and end up winning with a last second knockout.
Oregon had a chance to go up 14-0, but a dropped pass prevented that and then they missed a field goal the very next play. Oregon had a chance to punch it in again later in the game, but they fumbled it, Auburn recovered and ended up getting an easy three.
Overall, it was a frustrating game for Oregon as they should have won and not only did they blow it, but they didn’t even cover the spread with that last second, miraculous touchdown to end the game.
Anyway, Oregon plays a scrappy Nevada team that prevented Purdue from running the ball. Oregon struggled on the ground versus Auburn. Obviously, they’ll have more success in this one and the Ducks will look to pound the ball.
That’s the identity they want to establish and they’ll look to put the foundation on that this Saturday night.

It’s safe to say Oregon is going to win. They’ll be geared up and ready to go and the Autzen crowd will get behind them. Nevada is no pushover, but Oregon will win this one.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Oregon Up to -27.5
Will Oregon cover the spread? That’s the question and we’ll see exactly what the spread is, but I’d expect Oregon to put on a good show. Defensively, they were solid against Auburn and offensively they were pretty good, but they just couldn’t push it in once they got in the red zone.
They’ll be able to take advantage of those opportunities this Saturday against Nevada.
