Being that it’s an FCS opponent, Oregon will be expected to win on Saturday. And Oregon, despite an ugly loss to Georgia to open the season, will be expected to win big.

Bill Connelly’s SP+ model is predicting a 20-point victory for the Ducks. It gives Oregon an 88% chance of winning and calls for a 39-19 win.

“Our biggest opponent right now is Oregon,” coach Dan Lanning said on Wednesday. “We’ve got to perform better as our team before we start worrying about other teams. That being said, Eastern Washington certainly presents a lot of challenges. They have a really good passing attack. On offense, they challenge your eyes with double moves. They do a lot of good things. And then, obviously, they can run the ball and use a variety of personnel groups.”

Last Saturday’s game against Georgia was the first time since November of 2017 that Oregon failed to score a touchdown.

In front of their home crowd, the Ducks will look to move on from that performance. Perhaps the home crowd gives them a boost. Autzen Stadium provides one of the top homefield advantages in the sport.

Oregon enters Saturday riding a 19-game home winning streak, which is the third-longest active streak among FBS teams, only behind Clemson (34) and Cincinnati (27). That streak is also the fourth-longest in program history.

The Ducks have also won 28 consecutive non-conference home games, the second-longest active streak in the FBS (Alabama has won 40).

Just in home openers, Oregon has won 17 straight, averaging 56 points a game while holding opponents to 17 a game during that stretch.

Kickoff on Saturday is slated for 5:30 p.m. PT on the Pac-12 Network.
