Oregon is coming off of 3 consecutive games of wins by 19 points or more and are led by Heisman front-runner, Marcus Mariota. The Ducks are ranked 2nd nationally and are said by many to be one of the 4 teams in the college football playoff that is in its first year this season. After beating then 7th ranked Michigan State they took on Wyoming and won 48-14. The Ducks have struggled with Washington State in previous years for the first half of the game but they seem to pull away in the second half, like every game.
For Washington State, the Cougars have nothing to lose this weekend. After starting 0-2 with two disappointing losses they took on Portland State and got some momentum back. They are looking to get back on track and get an upset to help get them back to a consecutive bowl game. The Cougars will have the students backing them in Martin Stadium for the first time since 2010 and are really going to need to use them in this one. With the nations leader in almost everything passing, Connor Halliday, the Cougars will be airing the ball out and looking for Oregon weaknesses.
Oregon is favored by 24 points after starting out as 19.5 point favorites
