College Football Week 13: #5 Oregon At #16 Oregon State
|Cynics might say Chip Kelly’s team was exposed by the first good defense it faced this season. But the fact is, it is really hard to go undefeated. Oregon fans don’t want to hear that. They want to get back into the national championship picture.||Coaching||The Beavers bounced back from their tough loss to Stanford by absolutely crushing Cal, aiding in the firing of Jeff Tedford. They enter the Civil War confident they can take down their in-state rival.|
|The Ducks offense was slowed for the first time all season and now it must regroup against a formidable Oregon State squad.||Offense||The 62 points and 559 yards against Cal were obviously an aberration, but if quarterback Sean Mannion is playing well this offense is dangerous.|
|Decimated by injuries, this unit still looked pretty good against Stanford. If only they could have recovered that fumble in overtime…||Defense||The Beavers forced four turnovers last week, a theme for this unit all season.|
|Alejandro Maldonado, attempting just his third field goal of the season, put his 41-yard overtime attempt against Stanford off the left upright.||Special Teams||The Beavers have been solid on special teams, particularly when punting and kicking.|
The winner is
