FishWrap Friday Game 8 Preview: Oregon vs. WSU

Washington State, the real surprise of the PAC 12 this season, looks to knock off Oregon in Autzen and spoil the Ducks’ homecoming game. While unlikely, the Cougars hold more of a shot this year than you would think.

Check out this week’s video breaking down the rather unique Wazzu Offense.

 

 

Predictions:

I expect WSU to do some things right in this game, but then they’ll do too many things wrong to keep it close. Should be interesting to see how the defense can adjust without Cliff again, or bringing LMJ or DT back into the mix. Perhaps a reappearance of the Triple Tailback Threat? Or maybe the Double Pistol? Should be fun to step back into the spread offense laboratory. A big win is on the horizon for the Ducks, but it won’t feel like as much of a blowout as it will look in the final box score.

Oregon: 52

WSU: 13
