The Oregon Ducks take on the Fresno State Bulldogs on Saturday. Oregon is the heavy favorite to move to 2-0.

The Oregon Ducks look to continue their march to a national championship berth when they take on the Fresno State Bulldogs. Oregon won its first matchup handily against Arkansas State last week. The Ducks put up 50 points at warp speed and were pretty much crowned the victors well before halftime, cruising to a 57-34 victory that was not even as close as the score reflects.

Now they play Fresno State, a team coming off a solid-enough 37-10 victory over Weber State. Fresno will try and use its offense to keep up with Oregon, which seems like an almost impossible task. Oregon's defense will need to clean things up after a sloppy second half.

Addicted to Quack has more on what the Ducks defense will be looking to do this weekend.

Oregon is again expected to put the game away in the first half and is favored to win by 34 points. In addition to that Fresno State plans to run a no huddle, spread offense in hopes of keeping up with Oregon, which will invariably lead to more reps for both the Oregon offense and defense. Oregon will be rotating about 25 players on defense all year and the soft non-conference schedule provides a great opportunity to get everyone in sync and playing with the same degree of intensity and focus, regardless of the points on the scoreboard.

Game time, TV channel: 6:30 p.m. ET, Pac-12 Networks

Point spread: Oregon is favored by 34.5 to 35 points depending on the sportsbook.
