Fresh off an upset of the former No. 8 Stanford Cardinal on Thursday night, the No. 23 Washington Huskies will look to knock off their second Top 10 foe in two weeks as they take on the No. 2 Oregon Ducks in Eugene on Saturday night.
The Huskies downed the Cardinal, 17-13, to improve to 3-1 on the season. They'll have their hands full with the Ducks, however, who have won the last eight meetings between the two schools -- by an average of 25 points per game. While the Huskies' defense and tackling seemed improved in the win over Stanford, it will be a tough task to try to contain the speed and athleticism of the Ducks.
Oregon (5-0, 2-0 Pac-12) is coming off a win over Washington State that saw the team flounder a bit in the second quarter before unleashing what is becoming a trademark third-quarter surge on the Cougars and win 51-26 on Saturday night. The Ducks should lean on senior running back Kenjon Barner, who ran for three touchdowns and 195 yards on 20 carries in Week 5.
Game time, TV channel: 10:30 p.m. ET, ESPN
Point spread: Oregon favored by 24
