Oregon Ducks College Football Betting
The Oregon Ducks moved up to No. 9 in the AP College Football Rankings this week after a win over UCLA. The Ducks will be playing a rivalry game this week, as they take on the Oregon State Beavers on Friday night. Oregon is likely to win each of their six conference games this season because the Pac-12 is weak and because the Ducks don’t have to play USC. Oregon shouldn’t have any real chance to make the College Football Playoff considering they will have played just a six-game regular season, but as 2020 has already shown, nothing is impossible. The Oregon Ducks visit the Oregon State Beavers on Friday, November 27 with a start time of 7:30 p.m. Eastern with ESPN televising the game.

Oregon Ducks Weekly Matchup
The Ducks are a solid road favorite to defeat the Beavers on Friday night. Oregon comes into the game relatively healthy. Linebacker Noah Sewell was hurt last week against UCLA but he practiced earlier this week and is expected to play. The Ducks could also be getting tight end Cam McCormick back. He has not played yet this season but head coach Mario Cristobal said that McCormick is close. The Ducks have been without wide receiver Mycah Pittman and defensive backs Dontae Manning, Daewood Davis and Steve Stephens.
The Ducks have done enough on offense to win their first three games, but the defense has been spotty at best. The defense gave up 29 points to Washington State and last week they gave up 35 points to UCLA. Oregon State comes into this game at 1-2. They lost tough games to Washington State and Washington but bounced back to defeat California last week.
Oregon has dominated this series, winning 14 of the last 20. The Ducks have a big edge on offense and they should be able to outscore Oregon State on Friday. Oregon State’s defense has been awful against the run, allowing 206.7 yards per game. The Ducks should run all over OSU on Friday. OSU quarterback Tristan Gebbia has struggled this season with just one TD and three interceptions. The Beavers have had trouble protecting Gebbia, as they have allowed seven sacks in three games.
Oregon Ducks Weekly Recap
The Ducks got four turnovers against UCLA and turned them into four touchdowns in a 38-35 home win last week. The Ducks improved to 3-0 on the season and turnovers were huge, as they intercepted two passes and recovered two fumbles. "Proud of our guys for finding a way to win," UO coach Mario Cristobal said to the media, "Along the way, a lot of things we need to do better and would have liked to do better."
The win by Oregon against the Bruins was not easy, as UCLA got some defensive stops late in the game to make things interesting. The Bruins drove past midfield in the last minute of the game in an attempt to get into field goal range, but a fourth down pass fell incomplete with 19 seconds left.
"To have the defense out there and have to come up with a play is huge," said Cristobal, "The pressure's on, and you've got to find a way to stop them. … A field goal gets it to overtime. They found a way to get it done."
Tyler Shough was 19-of-30 passing for 334 yards with three touchdowns for the Ducks. Devon Williams caught six passes for 123 yards and a touchdown while Hunter Kampmoyer and Travis Dye had TD catches. The Ducks gave up four sacks and had just 88 rushing yards. "We didn't do as good of a job running the ball, that's obvious," Cristobal said. "We take a lot of pride in that, so inside, that's painful. But it's something we look forward to looking in the mirror and improving on."
UCLA was playing without quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson but redshirt freshman Chase Griffin had his moments and the Bruins had their chances before ultimately falling short.
