FishWrap Friday Game 10 Preview: Oregon @ Stanford

Game of the Century Round II? This is truly a special matchup late in the PAC 12 Season. Can Oregon match up with the powerful Cardinal run attack, and contain Andrew Luck in the same game? Can Stanford stop the improving Ducks Offense? In a game with such even categories, and a game that isn’t the first game of the season, it will either come down to the best quarterback, and since I don’t want to narrow it down to that, which offense can execute the best. Either way, expect a great game overall.

Predictions:

Well this is one is almost too close to call. It reminds me a lot of the Oregon-LSU matchup because of the way that you can’t really pick someone on paper, because it is so darn close. Oregon has firepower, but they also have a tendency to shoot themselves in the foot, or at least a recent trend of being choppy. If the Ducks come out of the gates slowly, like they have in almost every game this season, then Stanford will be up by 21 at half time. If the Ducks are on top of their game, they can fight with Stanford to the bitter end.

Expect Darron Thomas to be a bigger piece of Oregon’s success than Andrew Luck to Stanford’s.

I say Oregon is on top of their game, and Allioti’s defense is ramped up. It comes down to the last possession, and Luck has the ball.

It really could go either way

Oregon: 36

Stanford: 38
