Reason for #8 Oregon Ducks vs Southern California Trojans

#8 Oregon Ducks -4.5

The Beavers have lost four of their seven games and are coming off a bye last weekend. In their last game, Oregon State blew a 14-point lead before scoring late to earn a 21-17 road victory against California. 

The Ducks ended up winning the game 37-35 in the game and that was definitely something the Duck really loved because it helped them in getting the win and confidence. The win put the Ducks at a 7-1 record and a 5-0 record in the PAC12.

Leading the Beavers offensively is senior Jake Luton who looked great so far this season. Specifically, he has thrown for 1,602 passing yards and 16 passing touchdowns. In addition, he only has thrown one interception so he has been virtually perfect in terms of decision-making.

Hamilcar Rashed Jr. had three sacks and four tackles for losses while fellow linebacker Riley Sharp added three sacks in the win over Cal as the Beavers won back-to-back road games for the first time since 2013. Rashed Jr. tops the Pac-12 with nine sacks and 14.5 tackles for loss to lead the improving defense, which recorded 14 tackles for loss and nine sacks against the Bears.
