Oregon fought back from an early 14-3 deficit to take a 17-14 lead at halftime, however, the Ducks offense stalled out in the 2nd half and could not fight back after a 28-yard TD pass by the Golden Bears Chase Garbers gave California the lead for good with 5:14 left in the 3rd quarter. Oregon was outgained California by a 368-271 margin, however, committed 2 turnovers in the loss.

The Huskies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss and 6-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Ducks are 4-0 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, however, are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games after allowing less than 275 total yards in their previous game.
Washington picked up some nice wins earlier this season against Oregon State & Utah, however, suffered a disappointing loss against Stanford last week in which their defense let them down early. Oregon has disappointed on the road the last two weeks, however, they are 2-0 at home this season and between the fact that this is Washington’s first road game and that I think the Ducks will be able to find success offensively against Washington’s defense, I’m taking Oregon to cover this mid-range home spread. Good Luck!
