Oregon did everything possible to pull a Texas A&M and gack away a huge lead, but it held on to beat Nebraska to get to 2-0.
In one game, the Ducks under Willie Taggart both showed how explosive and dangerous they are, and showed there are still a slew of issues to deal with. But this is the chance to keep the fun going. With Arizona State and Cal up next, win this, and 5-0 is possible.
But it has to go on the road to face – maybe – the most talented NFL quarterback prospect in college football.
Wyoming struggled to get things going against Iowa, and was okay in a 27-0 win over Gardner-Webb. With the Mountain West season starting up next week, this is when the Cowboys and Josh Allen had to come up with something big to get the season going.
They get a big boy in their house. Now they have to do something with the opportunity.
One Reason Why Wyoming Will Win
Okay, Josh Allen, time to do the No. 2-overall-pick thing.
He’s been okay, but he lit up Gardner-Webb – whatever – and got whacked by Iowa. This is the game he has to show everyone why the NFL scouts are all drooling.
On the other side, the defense has been excellent so far. The front seven has been active behind the line, it’s been great at pressuring the quarterback, and even against Iowa, the run D has been okay.
Don’t turn the ball over, hope for Allen to do what he does, and expect the defense to slow down the machine just enough. Wyoming can do that. But …
One Reason Why Oregon Will Win
It’s all working.
It didn’t in the second half against Nebraska – failing to score as the Huskers roared back – but the Ducks were breathtaking on the way to a 41-14 halftime lead.
The No. 2 team in the nation is back to being explosive, with Royce Freeman running like an NFL franchise back, and Justin Hebert throwing for 365 yards and three scores.
The difference this year so far? The defense is far better at getting to the quarterback, and it’s been far more aggressive overall. With a pass rush that’s generated eight sacks so far, Allen should be under pressure all game long.
What’s Going To Happen
At home, the Wyoming offense will play well enough to make this a good, fun battle. Allen will hit the 300-yard mark with a solid overall performance, but a massive second quarter from the Duck offense will put the game away.
Allen will be good, Oregon QB Justin Hebert will be better.
