Why Oregon Will Win
The offense has figured it out.
It’s been a rough run for the Pac-12 so far to get the offensive production rolling – no one’s sharp, everything has been rugged, the O lines haven’t been right – but Oregon has managed to do enough to get by.
The team hasn’t been perfect, the defense hasn’t been a rock, but the offense leads the Pac-12 in total yards, the passing game is great with a whole lot of big plays, and Tyler Shough has been solid.
Oregon State struggled against the run over the first few games, and last week it had problems with Chase Garbers and the Cal passing attack. The pass rush hasn’t shown up yet and the third down stops aren’t there – Oregon will keep the chains moving.
Why Oregon State Will Win
The Oregon defensive front hasn’t been anything great, either.
There aren’t enough plays in the backfield so far on a consistent basis, it got run over way too easily by UCLA, and the team overall hasn’t been nearly as sharp or as dominant as it should be.
Oregon State is dangerous. RB Jermar Jefferson has been phenomenal so far – 120 yards or more in all three games – QB Tristan Gebbia has been inconsistent, but okay, and the team is bringing just enough pop to keep up the pace with whatever Oregon does.
The overall stats aren’t great, but the Beavers have the linebackers to keep up and contain the Oregon backfield. Come with a few takeaways – there’s been a slight fumbling problem with the Ducks – and this gets interesting.
What’s Going To Happen
The positive for Oregon is that it’s 3-0 and hasn’t played all that well. Eventually, the team is going to put it all tougher, the defense will start to be more productive, and the offense will show the normal knockout punch ability Duck fans are used to.
It won’t be this week, though.
Oregon State won’t win, but it’ll be plucky enough to make things interesting in the second half once Gebbia gets on a little bit of a roll.
