Why Arizona Will Win

Oregon’s defense suddenly looks very, very beatable.

It’s got the talent, and it has the athleticism, but after holding five straight teams to seven points or fewer – following the great overall defensive performance in the 27-21 loss to Auburn – there’s been a big problem.

The run defense has been okay – no one’s been able to get consistently generate any sort of a push up front – but the pass defense is getting hit hard.

That’s what happens when you play the better quarterbacks.

Jacob Eason hit 77% of his passes with big play after big play in Washington’s loss to the Ducks. Washington State went Washington State for over 400 yards and over eight yards per throw, and USC  two weeks ago went for three scores as the Kedon Slovis and his dangerous receiving corps were able to throw for 264 yards – the third-most UO allowed this year.

Arizona is splitting time between freshman Grant Gunnell and veteran Khalil Tate, and they’re combining to put up big plays for a passing game that’s averaging 300 yards per game.

The Wildcats have the offense to bomb away from the start, but …

Why Oregon Will Win

The Oregon secondary is making up for the big yards it’s allowing with lots and lots and lots of interceptions.

Colorado was able to move the ball a bit and get in range to make things interesting in Eugene, but the Ducks came up with four picks in the 45-3 rout.

Yeah, Anthony Gordon and Washington State went off and almost pulled off the upset, but two interceptions – with one going for a score – ended up being an issue.

Last week against Slovis and those great Trojan receivers? Oregon picked off three passes with one going for a touchdown.

Interceptions haven’t been a massive issue for Arizona, but he’s had three multiple pick games. But that’s just one side of the ball. The other is having a nightmare of a time coming up with any meaningful stops.

Arizona has allowed over 400 yards of total offense in every game, and isn’t doing any one thing particularly right.

The Oregon offense can – and will – move the ball however it wants to.

What’s Going To Happen

It’s been a wee bit of a grind at times over the last few weeks for Oregon, but it’s finding ways to win, and it’s about to crank up the offense.

The Wildcats have enough firepower to put up a few points, but the defense isn’t stopping anyone or anything. This isn’t normally a Duck offense that hangs big numbers on the board, but as long as it’s focused after two weeks off, it’ll score 50 getting off the bus.
