Two of the most disappointing teams in the Pac 12 get set for a Thursday night show down as the Oregon Ducks head to Arizona State to take on the Sun Devils.
Oregon, who had aspirations of being a BCS Playoff team, come in just 4-3 after a bye week. Prior to their bye week, they jumped above .500 with a win over Washington.
The Sun Devils come in off a bye as well, but they fell prior to their off week. Arizona State got dropped by the Utah Utes, who were at the time #3 in the nation.
The Ducks have at least one thing going for them heading into their contest with Arizona State on Thursday. They simply dominate the Sun Devils.
Oregon has won 8 straight in the head-to-head series as they ran away with a 43-21 win back in 2012 when these teams met. The country will get a look at RB Royce Freeman, who has been nothing short of spectacular this year.
Freeman sits 4th in the country with 142.4 rush yards per game. Freeman will surpass the 1000 yard mark on the season this coming game as he sits with 997 yards on 150 carries with 9 touchdowns.
With their win over Washington, the Ducks remained in the PAC 12 north race. QB Vernon Adams Jr. returned from a broken index finger injury as he threw for a pair of touchdowns in the 23-20 win.
Adams Jr. was solid prior to his index finger being broken as he’s thrown for 853 yards and 6 touchdowns on the season.
The Sun Devils are in the same boat as the Ducks. A team that had hopes of crashing the BCS Playoff have seen this season turn into a disaster at times. They come in off a 34-18 loss to the Utah Utes and will look to rebound as they try to get back into the PAC 12 race.
Currently, ASU sits 2-2 tied for 2nd with UCLA, but a game behind the Utes. That essentially is a 2 game deficit from Utah considering the tie breaker function.
RB Demario Richard is expected to return to the lineup following a knee injury that had him sidelined for the Utah matchup. On the season, Richard has rushed for 529 and 4 touchdowns.
QB Mike Bercovici needs to improve himself as he’s been extremely inconsistent on the season. Bercovici has thrown for 1846 yards with 14 touchdowns and 5 interceptions to his credit. They failed to record an offensive touchdown last game against the Utes as they just couldn’t get the ball moving without Richard in the backfield.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Prediction
Realistically, another loss for either of these teams in the PAC 12 would spell the end of any hope of stealing a division spot in the conference title game. With the way Arizona State’s offense is struggling here, the Ducks and Vernon Adams Jr. should be able to out duel the Sun Devils.
