The Ducks got trounced in their Week 1 game against Georgia on the national stage and we think that’s damaged some fans’ perceptions of them. Oregon is a really good team in a relatively weak PAC 12.
Since that Week 1 loss, they’ve only had one game that’s been decided by 10 points or less. Plus Cal is on a 3-game losing streak, including a loss to helpless Colorado. Hammer the Ducks here.
