In each of the last three games the Pilots haven’t been able to hit the 60 point mark, and if they want any chance in this game the offense is going to need to be better. Portland is led by Isaiah White who comes into this game averaging 12.2 points while shooting 42.2 percent from the field.
San Francisco has some big wins this season including over BYU, but they have also terrible losses like their game against Portland earlier this season.

Over the last five games, San Francisco's offense hasn’t been as strong averaging 62.2 points while the defense is giving up 68.6 points.
At home this the Dons are averaging 76.8 points per game and that offense is going to need to run up the score again.
