The Cougars got the big win over USC last week but now they have to prove they have staying power. They are on the road but this is still a good spot.
Oregon is improved from a year ago but they are missing their starting QB in this matchup. They might be the highest scoring team in the nation but that number in inflated by an early FCS win.
Washington State Cougars
The Cougs got the big win last week but there are still several obstacles to go this season. This week is an obvious letdown spot for a group not accustomed to this level of success.
Last week they proved that they do not have to play a perfect game to beat good competition. Their offense and defense were good enough. They capitalized on mistakes and made the plays they needed to to win.
They have to be concerned with the way that the Trojans ran the ball though. Oregon is going to want to really emphasize that aspect of the game to protect its inexperienced QB. If Wazzu can shut that down it could be an easy victory.
The Ducks were looking for improvement under a new regime and they have it. They are off to a good start but the schedule picks up and they will be without their top signal caller for at least a month.
Oregon may be down to its third string QB for this one. That would be Braxton Burmeister, a freshman who has attempted one pass this season. He is a dual threat guy so the question is whether he is up for an undefeated ranked team. Some kids rise to the occasion.
It might not make much of a difference if the defense does not improve. Opponents have been passing well against the Ducks and even though Wazzu is showing more balance this season they will definitely attack through the air.

This screams letdown spot for Washington State. The question is whether Oregon with their backup QB can really take advantage.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Washington State -2.5
Odds are the markets may still be underestimating Washington State. My only cause for pause is this is their first road game of the season and Autzen can be a tricky spot to play.
Still I am not confident the Ducks can be explosive enough on offense in this matchup to run and hide. Wazzu proved last week they can be resilient.
