The marquee game of Week 8 will be a top 10 showdown in Pac-12 country as the No. 9 UCLA Bruins head north to meet the No. 10 Oregon Ducks at 3:30 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, OR, and will air on Fox.

UCLA (6-0, 3-0 Pac-12) is fresh off a bye week and is looking to solidify itself as a legit Pac-12 title contender with a win today. The Bruins last defeated Utah 42-32 two weeks ago, a game where starting quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson threw for 299 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. Running back Zach Charbonnet added an additional 198 rushing yards and a touchdown as well.

Oregon (5-1, 3-0 Pac-12) is also coming off a bye and is looking for its sixth straight victory since its Week 1 disaster against Georgia. The Ducks last pounded Arizona in a 49-20 victory two weeks ago, a game where starting quarterback Bo Nix threw for 265 yards and added three rushing touchdowns on the ground.
