FishWrap Friday Game 11 Preview: USC @ Oregon

Well, well, well, how the tables have turned. A few years ago, it would be Oregon trying to pull of the upset in this matchup, now, it’s all in favor of the Ducks, while USC is bringing a banged up, distempered and frustrated team into Autzen.

We’ll just leave the talking to the surfer boy himself, Matt Barkley:

“Autzen was very loud and very hostile,” said Barkley on his only prior trip to Eugene, OR. “Fans aren’t nice there. I like playing there just because of the environment. And, Oregon’s very good this year, but I think they were better in the past. It’ll be a different situation this year but fun nonetheless.”

There is nothing in this game that doesn’t point to the Ducks. Oregon has a defense that is now tops in the conference, and an offense that is above and beyond everyone else in the conference. This is a showcase matchup for LaMichael, DAT, and Allioti’s defense. These are the games that Oregon flourishes in (at least in conference play). Expect big points in yet another Oregon rout.

Oregon: 52

USC: 24
