Both teams have the same record but are in different situations. The Utes looks like they are heading to the PAC 12 title game while the Ducks are just looking to build towards a better bowl opportunity.
Utah just has to win out I believe. That doesn’t make it easy but the path is in front of them. Win the games they are supposed to and they get a chance to be conference champs for the time in the PAC 12.
Oregon snapped a two game losing streak by beating up on UCLA last week. Both of those losses were on the road and the win at home. Hitting the road again might not be the best situation for the Ducks right now.
I just read mock draft that has Justin Herbert going first overall in next Spring’s draft. If that is the case the Ducks have kind of wasted him. They are able to draw talent but won’t have capitalized too much on having someone at that level. He gives them a chance against a rugged defense.
The Ducks are going to have to play some defense if they want to get this win on the road. Utah is good at controlling the clock and limiting the time and opportunity of opponents. Oregon needs it defense to give its offense a chance to win the game.
Utah is not going to represent the PAC 1 in the College Football Playoffs but they might be able to win a conference title this season. This team is just a solid tough group that knows how to win games. The record shows they are far from perfect but at the same time they are tough to beat.
Despite that complimentary intro the Utes are coming off a bad loss to Arizona State. Not only did they lose the game 38-20 but they lost starting quarterback Ty Huntley, likely for the season. He wasn’t having a great game but it was also abundantly clear that the backup was not ready for prime time.
With Huntley out the Utes will lean on a defense that is giving up less than 20ppg and a running game that can be bruising with Zack Moss. They will be hoping that the Ducks play to their reputation of being soft and that if they punch them in the mouth they will not respond. Interesting emotional battle.

This one is going to be all about who can get the game going the way they want. Utah is at home where they are tough and their style suits a certain kind of game, especially now with the QB situation in flux.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Oregon +4.5
I think the Utes will get the game they want but with their offense limited I don’t think they are going to be able to run and hide from the Ducks.
Oregon will be able to make a few big plays in the passing game to keep them in it and will have a chance to win it late. The home team prevails though.
