For the first time ever, ESPN’s College Game Day will be coming to you live from Pullman, Washington on the campus of Washington State University, for Saturday’s big Pac-12 North matchup between the Ducks and the Cougars.
Oregon is coming off a huge win over Washington at home last week in an overtime thriller, while the Cougars are coming off a 19 point win over the Oregon State Beavers up in Corvallis. Both teams will look to remain hot heading into the final part of their respective schedules.
#12 Oregon Ducks
Despite beating Washington last week, and having an overall better record than the Huskies, the Ducks still sit below the Huskies in the Conference standings. A consecutive win against a Top 25 school this weekend could propel Oregon into the College Football Playoff talks.
Oregon’s lone blemish came all the way back in week four when the Ducks squandered a late lead, only to fall to the Stanford Cardinal in overtime 38-31. If not for that loss, this would be a Top 5 school for sure at this point of the season.
The high flying Ducks offense is coming into this game scoring 43 points a game, but they’re heading into a hostile site where the home team is only giving up 12 points a game to visiting teams. The Ducks should be able to score more than that on the road, but this is a very good Cougars team.
#25 Washington State Cougars
The Cougars finally cracked the Top 25 this week after all of the shakeups in the polls last weekend. Washington State hopes to make it a clean sweep of the Oregon schools with a win against the Ducks on Saturday night.
Like the Ducks, the Cougars are staring up at their cross-state rivals Washington in the standings, but with the Apple Cup only 5 weeks away, the Cougars could very possibly win out, and face the Huskies with a berth in the Conference Championship game, and ultimately, a trip to Pasadena on the line.
This has been a pretty stingy team defensively this season. The Cougs are holding their opponents to a mere 23.8 points per game, and for a team that has had a majority of its games on the road so far, that is a very impressive number. Offensively, they come in scoring 41.8 ppg, nearly 20 points more than Oregon is giving up on average.

The Cougars are one of a very select few who have covered the spread in each of their 6 games so far this years. This could be the game that their streak comes to an end.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Oregon +2. Free ATS or O/U final score pick provided below!
I know I just told you that Washington State is a perfect 6-0 ATS this season, but I think their luck is going to change for the worse this weekend.
I think this game will be a lot like last weeks Oregon-Washington game. Decided by less than a touchdown. I think Oregon will take this one by a late field goal, and busting Washington States ATS streak.
