Preview

#25 Oregon Ducks will host the #12 BYU Cougars at the Autzen Stadium on Saturday. These teams haven't faced each other since 2006 season where the Cougars destroyed the Ducks 38-8 in Oregon.

 

BYU Cougars

The Cougars are 2-0 so far this season as they beat #9 Baylor Bears 26-20 last Saturday with a great performance from the defense. Jaren Hall led BYU with a 261-yard touchdown pass and a 22-yard touchdown catch. Chase Roberts caught eight passes for 122 yards and a touchdown, a career high. In the third quarter, Roberts also completed a touchdown pass to Hall.

With starting receivers Puka Nacua and Gunner Romney out due to injuries, the Cougars compensated by playing solid defense. BYU sacked Shapen four times for a 22-yard loss and totaled six tackles for loss.

 

Oregon Ducks

#25 Oregon struggled to score against Georgia but they bounced back and exploded vs Eastern Washington scoring 70 points. Bo Nix 28 of 33 passes recording 277 yards and 5 touchdowns. M. Irving ran for 74 yds in 8 carries while T. Franklin catched 10 passes for 84 yards and 1 touchdown. 

Defensively, the team allowed an average of 27 points per game last season and they have a new head coach in Dan Lanning who was a defensive coordinator for the Georgia Bulldogs. They played great defense in their last game allowing only 14 points.

 

BETTING TRENDS

Brigham Young are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games.

Brigham Young are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games on the road.

Brigham Young are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the Pac-12 conference.

Oregon are 11-5 SU in their last 16 games.

Oregon are 20-0 SU in their last 20 games at home.

Oregon are 9-1 SU in their last 10 games played in September.

 

Prediction

The Ducks have been outstanding at home as they have won 20 consecutive games holding the third longest streak in the nation and they just scored 70 pts in their last game but they'll now have a real test against BYU who have been playing great defense allowing an average of 20.5 pts per game so far. This is going to be a great game and should be close but with the Ducks on hot streak at home I believe we have to stick to it until they lose. Take Oregon.

PICK: Oregon Ducks -3.5 (-110)
