Pac-12 action here as the Oregon Ducks travel to California to take on the Stanford Cardinal.
Stanford lost at home to UCLA in Week 4, giving up 204 rushing yards in the process, and that poor run defense has been the story of the Cardinal’s season so far. They have allowed at least 185 yards of rushing in each of their first 4 games. As for the offense, they are managing just 347.5 yards per game and less than 113 on the ground.
As for Oregon, they enter this game as the third-ranked team in the nation on the AP poll after their victory over Arizona last week, and the Ducks’ offense has been firing on all cylinders. Oregon is averaging almost 39 points per game and has been running riot with their run game.
As for their defense, they are allowing less than 20 points per game and have a huge 13 takeaways already this season, while safety Bennett Williams already has three interceptions to his name
Oregon comfortably towers over Stanford on both sides of the ball, and it’s hard to see how the Cardinal keep this one competitive. Back the Ducks to win by more than a touchdown.
Oregon -8. Playable to -9.5.
