The Oregon Ducks are looking to improve to 10-1 and stay in playoff contention as they face a weak Colorado Buffaloes team at home.
No. 2 Oregon is already headed to the Pac-12 championship game since they have already clinched the Pac-12 North, but they are still hoping to win out and reach the playoff.
The Ducks will look to score style points as they face Colorado, who is the worst team in the Pac-12. They are 9-1 and coming off a bye week.
Their most recent win came against No. 17 Utah on the road as they won, 51-27. Quarterback Marcus Mariota continued to show why he is the Heisman Trophy favorite as he threw three touchdown passes and rushed for 114 yards with a rushing touchdown.
The Buffaloes, on the other hand, have lost six games in a row. They lost, 38-20, to No. 15 Arizona before their bye week.
Quarterback Sefo Liufau threw two interceptions, but running back Phillip Lindsay had a breakout game with 114 rushing yards.
The Buffaloes will have their hands full against a high-flying Ducks offense as they rank 120th in the nation with 38.6 points allowed per game.
Allowing 59 points to Cal and 56 to USC makes the Buffaloes’ chances against Oregon look bleak, but they may be able to compile garbage-time points.
Prediction: Oregon 63, Colorado 20
