Our Prediction:

Oregon will win

Oregon – Washington Match Prediction | 19-10-2019 15:30

Yeah, Wazzu is great at generating pressure, but the Oregon O line is great at keeping Herbert upright and give him time, and hes able to come through averaging close to ten yards per throw. Hes pushing the ball, and hes about to give the Cougars at taste of their own medicine if this gets into a firefight.

The Cougars win this one at home. The only problem is hell be outdone by Falk. Prukop will utilize his explosive tailbacks, and Freeman will get back on the horse with a touchdown run. Washington State will hop out to an early lead and extend it through the air. The Cougars will pile up the points with Falk and Marks finally breaking through the tape with a big performance. Brooks-James will also scoot into the end zone, but it will be Prukops show as far as the offense is concerned. Your jaw may drop more than the ball will in this game. Hell use his legs and his arm to get the ball rolling. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the offensive output youre about to witness.

Recent Takeaways

Take sigh of relief, Ducks. In his absence, Tony Brooks-James stepped up and provided a spark out of the backfield for Oregon. Thats big news considering he had rushed for 325 yards and four touchdowns on 37 carries before injuring his right knee. So far this season, hes rushed for 230 yards and six touchdowns on 33 carries. Royce Freeman may still be banged up, but your star tailback will likely play on Saturday.

His return could be crucial to the Ducks upset chances. Royce Freeman will be a major factor as well. Justin Herbert may be back for this one as he missed four games with a collarbone injury. Hes had a big senior season with 1,096 yards and 10 touchdowns on 6.0 yards per touch. Prior to his injury, he had passed for 1,264 yards, nine touchdowns and two picks.

The Ducks have dominanted this series both straight up and against the spread. WHO WE LIKE: Oregon. The Huskies did get back on track last week, but it came against a UCLA team that lost Josh Rosen during the game and let's be honest, quit on its season a few weeks ago. Washington is down 46 yards per game from last season and while its defense remains outstanding, the fact that the Huskies scored a single touchdown to ASU a few weeks ago is troubling. Granted, Washington exercised some demons a year ago in Eugene while waxing OU, 70-21. But both teams are different this time around.

Jake Browning is going to have his best game of the season and it comes at a perfect time with games against Stanford, Utah and Washington State to close out the year. Royce Freeman will still have a 100-plus yard rushing performance and the Ducks will keep it close for a half, but Washingtons defense will be stingy in the final 30 minutes to help the Huskies pull away.

He will need his first 300-yard passing game of the season to gain confidence for the final month of the year. Defensively, the Huskies must stop Freeman on the ground. This is more for the long-term success of the Huskies than what needs to happen versus Oregon. Washington is going to need Browning to be his old self against Oregons 99th-ranked passing defense.

Sidebar

Browning's interception was a high throw that went over the head of Aaron Fuller. Washington senior QB Jake Browning completed 18-of-26 passes for 265 yards with a touchdown and interception and ran for 49 yards and a score in a 31-24 victory over UCLA on Saturday. After that pick, Browning was back to being his accurate self, but it was his legs that did much of the damage, as he converted on several sneaks and picked up a few huge first downs to keep the Bruins from pulling off the monumental upset. Browning and the Huskies are going to have to be much better next Saturday in Autzen against Oregon.

Coaching: Washington State No disrespect to Helfrich, but there are quite a few voices chirping about whether or not he was responsible for that national championship appearance a few years ago. The point is we know Mike Leach is a brilliant offensive mind, and his defensive coordinator, Alex Grinch, is doing a fine job. Was it his coaching, or Marcus Mariotas play and Chip Kellys players?

Luke Falk is the straw that stirs the drink in Pullman. Hes already thrown for 1,124 yards and 11 touchdowns while having completed 74.1 percent of his passes. He has one of college footballs elite wide receivers in Gabe Marks, who has gotten off to a slow start by his standards: 27 receptions, 242 receiving yards and four touchdowns. With a poor Oregon defense coming to town, Washington State could take to the sky like never before.

The over is 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams in Eugene and while it might come down to a late fourth quarter score, I expect the over to hit on Saturday night, too. While the Huskies defense is outstanding, we know that Oregon can light up a scoreboard, especially at home. Washingtons offense is starting to fire on all cylinders, scoring 35 points against BYU and 31 last week at UCLA.

Ed Oliver, Clelin Ferrell, Jonah Williams and Josh Allen make up the analyst's top-five. Beyond Williams, the stud offensive tackle at Alabama, the only other offensive player to make the top cut was Oregon QB Justin Herbert, who slots in at No. On the latest big board for the 2019 draft courtesy of Draftwire's Luke Easterling, Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert was one of just two offensive players ranked in the top-10. Easterling. That is to say, dominated by defensive prospects. 9 for Mr. A few big boards have a little more offensive flair up top, but by-and-large, Easterling's top-10 is a strong representation of the consensus on the very front-end of the class.
