Oregon faces Stanford on Saturday, October 2nd, at Stanford Stadium for a Week 5 PAC-12 college football matchup. 

Oregon is now ranked #3 in the country for the second straight week after taking care of business against Arizona in Week 4. Oregon took down the Wildcats by the final score of 41-19 as it was a comfortable win for the Ducks from start to finish. Oregon is a perfect 4-0 on the year and it would not be shocking to see the Ducks run the table in the PAC-12 and go a perfect 12-0 in the regular season. Oregon is led by quarterback Anthony Brown who has a 57.1% completion rate, 773 passing yards, seven passing touchdowns, and zero interceptions. The leading rusher for Oregon has been CJ Verdell, who has 60 rushing attempts for 334 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns. 

Stanford is 2-2 on the year and 0-1 in conference play after its most recent loss to UCLA in Week 4. UCLA defeated Stanford by the final score of 35-24 at Stanford Stadium. Stanford trailed 21-7 at halftime of that contest and lost the total yard battle 455-360 in the end. Stanford has had consistency issues on both sides of the ball. At Vanderbilt, Stanford was able to rush for 204 rushing yards on 7.6 yards per carry. It was a different story last week, as Stanford was only able to muster 67 rushing yards for 3.0 yards per attempt. Stanford is scoring 29 points per game and is allowing 28 points per game on the season, numbers that are about average for a Power 5 team. Stanford has struggled against the run defensively, as the Cardinal are allowing an average of 209 rushing yards per game and over 5 yards per carry.

Oregon is an 8-point favorite and the total is set at 57.5. I like the under in this contest, as I expect Oregon's defense to be too much for Stanford to handle. I expect Oregon to run the ball consistently and thus chewing more clock than Stanford would hope for. I think Oregon controls the tempo of this one and it stays under the number.
